Rachel is the RAMP Program Coordinator for Clinton, Franklin, Essex, and St. Lawrence counties, collaborating with our Career Counselors to ensure the success of the program all the RAMPers it serves. She graduated from Peru High School, attended college at Plattsburgh State and UVM, and has a Master’s Degree in Public Health, and previously ran a program called Reality Check, working with middle and high school students—education and experience she puts to work for RAMP every day.
Having felt first-hand the confusion and uncertainty involved in picking a career, she’s thrilled to be able help students as they figure out what their own paths are going to be. "I was attracted to this program because I believe it’s a great option and opportunity for those who need a little more time after high school. I can relate well with these students who are making big life decisions at such a young age, and offer them support and guidance.” said Rachel. “I was always a student who worked my way through school full time, and I can honestly say my work experiences gave me valuable life skills and molded me into who I am today."
