Rachel earned her Juris Doctorate (J.D.) from the J. Reuben Clark Law School (BYU Law). During law school, she was recognized with the Faculty Award for Meritorious Achievement and Distinguished Service. Rachel spent her free time in law school volunteering at the Family Justice Center, working with clients on all aspects of family law and landlord tenant issues. She has training in working with survivors of domestic violence. She cares deeply about helping her clients navigate the legal system to find resolution and restitution. Rachel previously earned a M.A. in Comparative Studies from Brigham Young University and a B.S. in Geology, also from BYU.
Rachel is interested in environmental and water law issues. She clerked at the Law and Policy Section of the Environment and Natural Resources Division of the Department of Justice in Washington, D.C. and now serves on the Provo Metropolitan Water Board and the Board of Trustees for the Utah Chapter of The Nature Conservancy.
Rachel enjoys digging through municipal and state code. These codes are part of the legal infrastructure of the community, and they shape the physical infrastructure and have a direct impact on both the natural environment and quality of life.
Rachel and her family have lived in downtown Provo since 2009, except for a year-long sabbatical in Belgium. She enjoys hiking, yoga, and textile arts, and prefers her bike as her primary mode of transportation.
