Secretary, Patient Safety Movement Foundation (2021-2023)
Rachael graduated from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Communications in 1997 and California Western School of Law in 2002. She worked as an associate attorney at a small law firm in San Diego, CA led by a board member of a local hospital; she then began to split her time between the firm and hospital, where her desire to use her skills for the benefit of the patient was strengthened. After relocating to Burlington, VT, she was admitted to the Vermont Bar, and began working for the University of Vermont Medical Center (formerly Fletcher Allen Health Care) in the Supply Chain Services Department in January 2006. Despite moving back to California in 2012 she has proudly served Burlington, VT and surrounding communities in this capacity ever since.
Rachael has been volunteering with the Patient Safety Movement since 2014, and is currently serving on the Board of Directors as Secretary.
