AAPAE Candidate – Moquin

Rachel Moquin, EdD, MA

Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis

Statement of Interest

I am interested in this position because I would enjoy the opportunity to work more closely with the leadership of the AAPAE and I bring a skill-set conducive to the role of Secretary. I am detail-oriented, highly organized, and collaborate well with others to support projects and ideas. The AAPAE has been a very important part of my learning and growth, and I would welcome the chance to give back to the organization in a meaningful way.

If I were offered the opportunity to serve on Council, I would like to focus on these key areas: streamline systems for note-taking and record-keeping, facilitate and strengthen connections among members of AAPAE, build out the "news & resources" section of the website so that it functions as an active place for members to get information and learn, encourage and support members in the development of presentations for conferences, and provide general support to other Council ideas and initiatives.
