Colorado native Rachel became a member of the Tschetter Sulzer legal team in July 2014. Prior to joining the Firm, Rachel was a Deputy Public Defender for the Office of the Colorado State Public Defender in Alamosa, Colorado, a position that afforded her the opportunity to acquire extensive courtroom experience in a variety of practice areas and Colorado localities across much of Southwestern Colorado.
Rachel is a graduate of the University of Colorado and received her JD from Sturm College of Law at Denver University. While attending law school, Rachel received wide-ranging on-the-job experience, interning each summer at the Public Defender’s office. Rachel participated in the Criminal Law Clinic in her last year of law school and received course credit for representing real clients in a broad diversity of cases. This opportunity to get out of the classroom and into the courtroom gave Rachel great experience in litigating cases and first-hand exposure to the practical realities of the law, affirming for her that her passion for advocacy had led her to the right choice of a career to be an attorney-at-law.
A Cherry Creek High School graduate, where she lettered in cheerleading and actively participated in theater, Rachel continued to express her love of the theater and performing while attending CU. One of four siblings, she has two brothers and an identical twin sister. When away from the office, Rachel keeps busy with Yoga, hiking, and during the winter months, skiing. She enjoys all types of music and frequently attends concerts. She also enjoys spending time with her friends and family with whom she often participates in sampling all of the culinary delights Denver has to offer. An avid reader, Rachel always enjoys a good read, whether a current bestseller from the New York Times’ List, or a good mystery/thriller.
