Meet Rachel Chapman, our newest licensed Architect was born and raised in Dallas, Texas and attended Ursuline Academy. She is an all-state goalkeeper and high-school hero winning three consecutive state titles for varsity soccer at Ursuline. Go Bears!
She is a proud fightin' Texas Aggie and spends most Saturdays watching A&M football. Rachel attended Tulane University for her Master of Architecture and has an affinity for New Orleans. She has participated as part of the Muses Krewe in Mardi Gras parades and enjoys visiting whenever she can.
Rachel, surprised when Michael popped the question in the great city of New Orleans, a place near and dear to her heart, celebrated with family and close friends on the special day!
In her spare time, you can find Rachel cycling around White Rock Lake, trying new restaurants, snowboarding or hunting. Recently engaged to her fiancé Michael, Rachel now spends some of that spare time with friends and family planning the ‘big day’, scheduled for 2020!
In Rachel’s short time at Glenn|Partners, she has begun to dive in and tackle many aspects of our firm’s largest, and perhaps most complex project; the new East Campus Building and West Campus renovations for Ursuline Academy, Rachel’s beloved alma mater...Glad to have you as part of our growing team!

First Moment when you realized you wanted to be an Architect
When my parents told me I couldn’t be an artist. Just kidding… A career shadowing program through Ursuline, I shadowed architects and knew it was what I wanted to do.
