Experience

Rachel graduated from the University of Kansas in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science in Journalism and a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies. She then attended the University of Kansas School of Law, where she was an Articles Editor for the Kansas Law Review, a teaching assistant for Lawyering I & II, and a member of the Moot Court Council. In the In-House Moot Court Competition, she won awards for best over-all team and for second best brief. She was also a member of the National Moot Court Team. During law school, Rachel received further recognition for her legal research and writing skills with the Payne & Jones Lawyering Award and CALI Excellence for the Future Award in Lawyering I.

After graduating from law school in 2013, Rachel began her legal career in private practice at a mid-size Kansas City law firm specializing in civil litigation. There, her practice primarily involved defending employers and workers’ compensation insurance carriers in workers’ compensation matters.
