As Director of Strategic Operations & Marketing, Rachel coordinates LCLMA’s efforts to engage lawyers and law students in Massachusetts with the free & confidential services we offer. She works on making LCLMA’s client services and resources as accessible, effective, and enjoyable as possible to help those in the legal profession manage a fulfilling quality of life and rewarding career, and coordinates strategic planning efforts along with key operations for the organization.
Rachel serves on the communications and conference planning subcommittees for the ABA Commission on Lawyer Assistance Programs, serves as a co-chair of the communications committee for the Institute for Well-Being in Law, is a member of the American Marketing Association, and holds a few marketing-related certifications from various entities.
Rachel joined LCLMA in 2010 as the admin for LCL’s practice management services, shortly after quitting law school in the middle of her third year at the University of Connecticut, following an award-winning performance that culminated in compromised mental health. Prior to joining LCL, Rachel spent 7 years over her academic career interning in the corporate legal department of the world’s then-reigning largest employee-owned corporation, where she pioneered technology implementations to facilitate in-house legal operations, never stopping to get approval first. She graduated magna cum laude with a BA in Politics from Saint Anselm College, where she was inducted into a few honors associations represented by various Greek letters and received a High Pass distinction on her thesis, which she wrote on the effects of patent law policy on research and development. At Saint Anselm, she was a 2-year co-captain of the debate team, receiving a variety of awards over her four years of competition in the National Forensic Association’s Lincoln-Douglas policy debate circuit.
Rachel loves being outside, especially with her kid and dog.
