Administrative Director of the Gittis Center for Clinical Legal Studies
After graudating cum laude from Rutgers School of Law’s Tax Honors Program in 1998, Rachel began her legal career in Arthur Andersen’s Philadelphia office as a Senior Tax Legal Consultant serving corporate clients in the Human Capital department. After a number of years working on employee benefit plans, health and welfare plan issues, and stock option and compensation plan designs, Rachel left Arthur Andersen to take on an exciting new role as the Director of Human Resources and In-House Counsel for the franchisee owner and operator of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. A few years later, Rachel and her family made the difficult decision to move to South Florida. It was there that Rachel discovered her true passion and ultimate career path was in law school administration. She served as the Associate Director of Career Development at Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Being a true Philadelphian at heart, after five years in South Florida, Rachel and her family moved back to the area and she began working as the Clinic Administrator at Penn. Rachel enjoys spending her free time with her husband, young son and golden retriever. She enjoys working out at the gym and participating in charity events to raise money and awareness for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and Little Rock Foundation.
