Rachel grew up in Washington, DC, and majored in Philosophy at Boston University. After graduating she moved to Philly and worked as the Philadelphia Grassroots Director for The Humane League, a farm animal advocacy group, where she focused her efforts bringing “Meatless Monday” to the Philly School District, speaking in Philly public schools, and building up a strong veg community. After two years in Philly, she moved to DC to create the Campus Outreach Department which grew from working with 18 students to 52, paying each student to conduct advocacy on their campus; during those two years Rachel traveled around the country and spoke on dozens of campuses, to thousands of college students, about the current state of animal agriculture. She now works at the New York City Mayor’s Office as the Animal Welfare Liaison, working on topics from banning wild animals in the circus, to non-lethal deer management, to introducing food topics inside government.
