Employee Spotlight
Rachel Caroline Baker, GameChangers Program Coordinator

Rachel's favorite part of working with the YWCA is the people & the mission. Bust most of all, working with such incredible people who truly believe in the Y’s mission and carry it out every single day. The people here are one of a kind, and the warm, inviting, passionate culture is just the same. 

 Fav quote: “No one can make you feel inferior without your permission” by Eleanor Roosevelt
Fun fact: Rachel's first car was a 1964 ½ Ford Mustang. 
We are grateful for all of Rachel's hard work and support!
