Welcome Rachel Clevenger and Liz Frey!

Rachel Clevenger previously worked as a grant administrator in UMN Sponsored Projects Administration (SPA) and most recently in the Department of Medicine as a grant coordinator. While at SPA she occasionally supported CFANS and always enjoyed working with our faculty and staff, so she was excited about the opportunity to join the CFANS Finance team. She and her husband have a young son who fills most of their free time with toddler-related activities. When she finds “grown-up” time she enjoys reading mystery novels, seeing live music and jogging outdoors.

Liz is joining the CFANS Finance team as a Principal Accounts Specialist where she will be processing expense reports, PCards, requisitions, etc. She came from the Department of Soil, Water, and Climate where she worked in the main office over the summer. Prior to that she attended the University of Minnesota Duluth and the Aveda Institute Minneapolis. She is very excited to continue her career here at the U of M and on the CFANS team!

Liz was born and raised in White Bear Lake, MN where she still currently resides. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her family on the lake up north, doing various DIY craft projects, playing volleyball, and hanging out with all of the pups in her family. She loves to see new places and would love to travel the world some day!
