Rachel believes that a Family Court Judge should listen to and support families through crises. Growing up in the Hudson Valley, Rachel encountered the family court system during her parents’ divorce. That experience inspired her lifelong commitment to helping people, particularly those who are unable to advocate for themselves. From serving as a public defender to offering free legal counseling to working class people, she knows the struggles families face. Rachel hopes to continue helping other children and families in crisis find a path forward as Dutchess County’s next Family Court Judge.
