Rachel Herd is a Western Washington University alumna with a degree from the College of Business and Economics and a minor in Spanish. Splitting her time between Denver and Santa Fe, Rachel currently works as a judicial clerk for the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, where she supports a federal appellate judge as he decides current legal controversies. Rachel previously spent time in the Department of Justice’s Asset Forfeiture and Money Laundering Section, in the Seattle Juvenile Court system’s Youth Advocacy Clinic, and in the commercial litigation group of a Seattle firm. After her year in the southwest, she will return to Seattle to work as a litigator.

Before attending law school, Rachel worked in advertising for Seattle’s CBS affiliate and interned for the Sundance Film Festival. When she’s not working, she’s running, exploring the outdoors, taking tap dancing lessons, and hanging out with her husband, Brayton.
