As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Leveraging five decades of excellence as a cultural anthropologist and biologist as well as in space science, Dr. Rappaport has earned distinction as the co-founder of The Human Sentience Project LLC. Since 2013, she has focused her efforts on conducting research in human cognitive evolution, neuroscience, ecotheology and lunar and space sciences. In her leadership role, she also plans, budgets and manages company projects.

Prior to founding The Human Sentience Project LLC, Dr. Rappaport served as the President of Policy Research Methods, Inc. from 1986 until 2006. She also was a professor of anthropology and sociology for Georgetown University, The George Washington University, and Prince George's Community College.

She has also contributed six books and numerous articles to her field, including "Capital Crime: Black Infant Mortality in America" in 1989, "Space Science and Astronomy Theatre" in 2017, "The Emergence of Religion in Human Evolution (Routledge Studies in Neurotheology, Cognitive Science and Religion)" in 2020, and "Capital Cubans: Refugee Adaptation in Washington, D.C." in 1989.
