Rachel joined Tucker Ellis as a summer associate in 2016, working on product liability and commercial litigation matters.

While in law school, Rachel was a judicial extern for the Honorable Donald C. Nugent at the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio. She was also a member of the team that placed first in the August A. Rendigs National Product Liability Moot Court Competition in 2017, defeating 13 teams from across the country.

As an undergraduate, Rachel played varsity softball for John Carroll University. A northeast Ohio native, she now lives in downtown Cleveland. In her spare time, she enjoys running, kickboxing, playing volleyball and softball, watching the Cleveland Indians and Cavaliers (although she is a Pittsburgh Steelers fan), and trying out Cleveland's newest restaurants.
