Student Spotlight – Rachel Molitor

Rachel Molitor

Rachel Molitor (’18) is a double major in Economics and Biology. She knew she wanted to pursue economics at Wake after having too much fun studying for AP Macro and Micro in high school. Even though she is a premedical student, she continues to enjoy her economics classes most of all, inspired by the freakonomics trend of applying economic theory to anything and everything. On campus, she is a member of the Wake Forest Dance Company, public speaking chair in Kappa Alpha Theta sorority, and a dog walking enthusiast. Rachel spent her previous summer studying abroad in Tours, France. She enjoys finding excuses to discuss application of economics to daily life, and overuses the phrase “this is why economists should run the world”. She currently works in the department of gerontology at Wake Forest Baptist Health, and when she inevitably becomes a successful anesthesiologist, she hopes to contribute her economical insight to her workplace via leadership positions.
