Hello Indiana!  My name is Rachel Beach and I have been working closely with the Indiana Department of Education since 2016 in supporting Indiana SFAs by providing them access to inTEAM’s eLearning platform and developing Indiana-specific courses.  I am here to help Indiana users with any of their consulting and/or software needs, so please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns!


About Rachel

A little about me: I started working in Child Nutrition in 2014, and I have worked at inTEAM as a Consultant since 2015. My previous work experience includes working as a Food Service Director at a small, independent district in Kentucky, so I am familiar with the daily operations at a district level. I also worked at the Kentucky Department of Education, where my duties included assisting with Administrative Reviews, supporting districts with their menu planning, and providing training to SFAs. I graduated from the University of Kentucky (Go Cats!) in 2011 with a degree in Human Nutrition. I am based out of Northern Kentucky, so I am just across the river from y’all. 😊
