When Rachael was 18, she spent Christmas in the ICU, watching her dad fight for his life after he suffered a debilitating stroke. The quality of his care was incredible, and she saw first-hand what happens when health care is done right. Yet, she realized that her dad’s story was a miracle in many ways, and one that many families living in disadvantaged circumstances might not see. She’s passionate about lending her talents to a foundation that works to turn that reality on its head and firmly believes that everyone, no matter their background, should be able to receive exceptional health care.
Rachael helps further the foundation’s mission in her role as communications manager. She works to produce and share materials that enhance the foundation’s vision and provide donors with the opportunity to connect to a program that’s meaningful to them.
Prior to joining the Denver Health Foundation in 2020, Rachael worked as a communications strategist for a foundation within Centura Health and earlier in marketing for the Children’s Museum of Denver. Rachael has a B.A. in communication and a B.S. in broadcast journalism from the University of Colorado at Boulder, and an M.S. in health communication from Boston University.
