Rachel Reese is originally from Denver, Colorado, and will be completing her social work major and Spanish minor this May. She has been active both on and off campus throughout her four years at NYU. As a program coordinator for Project HEALTH and Senior Class Representative on the Undergraduate Student Government Association (USGA), she has helped foster community among Silver students and the larger University population. Through her field placement at Groundwork Inc., she has gained organizing experience through parent mobilization projects, as well as coalition building with other community-based organizations in the East New York neighborhood. She plans to pursue a career in community organizing, and hopes to focus on the issue of unequal access to healthy food choices and nutrition education in low-income communities. She would like to bring her developing understanding of the role of business in moving social change forward to that work.
