Biography

Rachael is a part of the UC Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program, serving as the Statewide Agritourism Coordinator.  In this role, she assists farmers in diversifying their revenue by participating in agritourism activities and host California's statewide directory and calendar of agritourism operations. 

After receiving her Bachelor's degree in International Affairs from the University of Georgia and Master's degree in Global Environmental Policy from American University, she has devoted her career to strengthening vibrant and sustainable food systems. Over the past 10 years, Rachael has worked for non-profit organizations promoting urban farming and food security in Washington, DC, building a robust local food system on the island of Nantucket, Massachusetts, and showcasing sustainable agroforestry techniques in southern Belize. In each of these settings, she has seen the power of agritourism to provide resiliency to farmers, inspire and educate the public, and connect the community.  She is eager to connect with, learn from, and share ideas with California farmers and ranchers.
