A native Texan, Rachael was born and raised in Austin. Rachael moved to Georgetown with her husband and twin daughters in May of 2006, after searching for the best place to raise their family. They have since had two sons. Rachael and her husband, Brian, have owned their own business for over 10 years, giving her an appreciation for the rewards and difficulties faced by small-business owners. In addition to raising a family and growing a business, Rachael and Brian have also been working on a loving renovation of their Old Town home, and are looking forward to its completion.
Rachael can often be found enjoying the Georgetown Library and our many parks with her family. She is passionate about supporting locally-owned businesses, and finding the freshest in-season foods available at local farmers markets. As a volunteer in the community, she has helped organize letter-writing, voter-registration and get-out-the-vote drives and constantly works to encourage greater diversity and participation in local government.
Rachael believes that our government is only as good as the people who are elected. She wants to encourage more people to: be aware of who their representatives are, get involved, and encourage accountability & transparency. Through the use of social networking tools and letting constituents know of her availability, she hopes to elicit feedback from a wide variety of citizens in District 6, in order to become the best representative possible. Her personal goal, as an elected representative, is to do her part to make sure that decisions made at City Council reflect the needs and desires of her district, and benefit the people of Georgetown.
