Elect a Progressive Democrat so we can have a government that works for everyone! ​Rachel stands for Honesty, Integrity, and Hard work!

Rachel was born and raised in Joliet. She graduated from Joliet Central High School and earned a BA in mathematics from Benedictine University in Lisle. She is the daughter and granddaughter of union workers.

She worked as an actuary in California before becoming a military spouse for 10 years which afforded her the opportunity to travel the world. During this time she lived in Virginia, Georgia, and Washington where she volunteered with a number of organizations such as Family Readiness Group, West Sound Officer’s Club, Naval Base Kitsap Neighborhood Organization, Submarine Officer Spouse’s Association, Educarious, and RPG Creators Relief Fund. She also has worked as a substitute teacher, a state park naturalist, and now a business director.

Now a single mother of twins, Rachel has returned to the Joliet area, and is currently a volunteer for Joliet School District 86, Girl Scouts, and an active thespian at Joliet Will County Bicentennial Park. She is also an active life-long member of the American Legion Auxiliary.

With years of experience serving others through her work and volunteerism, Rachel is ready to serve her community as a member of the Will County Board District 9.

Rachel’s motto is “No Strings Attached”. She believes government should work for everyone, not special interests. She is committed to making the lives of working families in Will County better. Rachel isn’t afraid to ask the tough questions in order to find solutions for bold progress in Will County.
