As the Senior Programs Manager, Rachel manages the Everyone Counts Campaign and the WRAP and TAY programs.

Rachel has a long history in social services related to mental health and suicide prevention in both direct service and leadership roles. As someone who faces her own mental health challenges, she is honored to be a part of the PEERS team which honors her experience, values her abilities, and allows her to be her full self. She is also thrilled to be advocating for people with lived experience both by addressing broader attitudes surrounding mental health and by directly supporting people in their wellness efforts.

In her spare time, Rachel continues to volunteer as a crisis intervention specialist and hopes to return to being a foster parent to cats. She loves traveling, exploring nature, and making pottery.
