Rachel is originally from the South Hills region of Pittsburgh, which is the superior region if you ask her. She is a recent graduate of the highly accredited public relations program at Kent State University, which is argued to rival Harvard, and has a background in crisis management, graphic design and media relations. Rachel began her career in politics on Senator Rob Portman’s reelection campaign in 2016 and then worked on countless congressional, statewide and local campaigns in Northeast Ohio.
At Kent State, Rachel was the president of her College Republicans’ chapter, served as the statewide communications director of the Ohio College Republican Federation and co-founded the IGNITE women chapter at Kent’s campus, which is a bipartisan organization that empowers females to run for office. Rachel built her communications background by designing and writing patient education materials at the Cleveland Clinic’s Heart and Vascular Institute. Because of this, she has an unusually large wealth of information on cardiovascular diseases for someone who is not a medical professional.
Rachel is a proud bunny mom and has a bulldog named Mo. She enjoys reading and doing anything outdoors in her spare time. She also watches far too many reruns of The Office with her sister.
