The Academy of Notre Dame de Namur is thrilled to welcome Rachael Tobinus as the new Assistant Athletic Director and Director of Crew.
Tobinus graduated from Thomas Jefferson University, receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s in Community and Trauma Counseling.
After a 3-year rowing career in high school, Tobinus continued with her passion for crew as a member of Jefferson’s women's rowing team for four years.
Prior to joining the Notre Dame community, Tobinus served as a crew coach for Philadelphia City Rowing's middle school for one season. She also was a full-time assistant coach with novice rowers at St. Joseph’s University from 2019 - 2021 and then at Thomas Jefferson while she was a graduate assistant. Tobinus was also a part-time assistant at TJU this past fall.
“It is exciting to see how serious the girls are about athletics [at Notre Dame] because I am, too,” Tobinus said.
Tobinus is excited to be part of the “athletic successes of Notre Dame” and to help shape the next generation of rowers.
