Rachel grew up spending much of her time outside, and still loves outdoor activities. She recently moved from Philadelphia, where she spent several years working in environmental and outdoor education, and youth development. Most recently, she served as Environmental Education Program Director for UrbanPromise Ministries environmental education program in Camden, NJ.

She is also a lover of good food, and has long been passionate about local, nutritious, plant-based food. While serving SCLT as a TerraCorps Member, she is excited to work alongside youth and to learn more about food justice in action.

In her free time, you can find Rachel doing yoga, paddling, running, reading a good book, and hanging with her husband and cat named Otter.
