When not rallying for fair food, Rachel can be spotted at the farmers market, practicing yoga and dancing to the “beet” of life. She is the current Social Media Manager and Writer at UC San Diego’s School of Global Policy and Strategy. In her freelance work, she has written for Edible Magazine, the Santa Barbara Independent, and Seasons Magazine. A graduate of UC Santa Barbara, she helped found the Gaucho Certified Farmers Market on campus.
Inspired by culinary adventures, street food and world travel, she lives by the motto “eat well, travel often.” In her free time, you can spot her cycling around San Diego in search of the best almond croissant and supporting good, clean, fair food as the Communications Co-Chair of the Slow Food Urban SD Convivium of Slow Food International.
