Biographical

With a multi-faceted career spanning work as a casualty and coverage attorney,  insurance claims person, underwriter, and executive, Rachel brings a wellrounded perspective to all of her mediations. She has worn many hats in the dispute resolution process including serving as: decision-maker, mediator, counsel of record, party representative, plaintiff, and insurance executive with final settlement authority. This breadth gives her a deep understanding of the factors that motivate the parties involved to settle their cases. In the mediator role, Rachel is adept at building rapport with both sides through candid communications. Her expertise in property, liability, automobile coverage, regulatory compliance, and good faith claim handling has been particularly beneficial in working through insurance-related matters.
