She, Her, Hers
View Rachel’s condensed bio here.
I work with child welfare systems that are making changes to improve their practices and outcomes for children and families they serve, typically as a result of litigation. I work with a team to collect and analyze data, meet with child welfare leaders and staff, engage with stakeholders, and produce reports.
I do this work because
Children and families have a right to better outcomes.
I am most proud of
When our work with systems results in improvements to policy or practice (and outcomes!).
