Rachel has spent more than a decade working in the realm of child welfare. Through her work in operations management, training, and Title IV-E, she has seen the inner-workings of state and tribal child welfare agencies across the nation. Her unique ability to understand unique system structures and find ways to build capacity and address barriers to access help her meet her own personal goal of making positive change in children and families’ lives.
Rachel knows that people and connections are a key component of developing and maintaining access to resources, and she works tirelessly to connect people with the knowledge and training they need to succeed. She is a trained coach, facilitator, and curriculum developer, and uses these skills to develop the next generation of leaders in Indian Country.
In her downtime, you can find Rachel building lasting memories and connections with her friends and family through deep conversations, sport outings, and community celebrations. She is a devoted attendee of her children’s games, frequently traveling cross-country to sit in the stands and cheer them on!
