They say it takes a village, but in Rebecca’s case, it took a neighborhood.
Rebecca grew up on the Upper East Side, attended P.S. 158 and East Side Middle School, before attending Columbia Prep School. Rebecca played on the camels in John Jay Park, where she and her husband Evan happily now take their son Benjamin. The Upper East Side is the community to which Rebecca and her family are dedicated, where her parents still live, and where Rebecca and Evan have chosen to raise their son.
From an early age, Rebecca learned the power of public engagement. From letter-writing campaigns to save local firehouses and libraries, to interning at the Gracie Mansion Conservancy in high school, and at former President Clinton’s Foundation after college, Rebecca has learned the powerful impact that dedicated individuals can have on, not only the world, but on the lives of their neighbors.
After graduating from Trinity College, Rebecca came home and was driven to give back to the community that raised her. She serves on the Board of the New York League of Conservation Voters, is an active member of the community at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of the City of New York. Rebecca has also served on the New York County Democratic County Committee, as the Vice President of the East River Democratic Club, and as a Delegate to the Judicial Convention.
While working full-time, Rebecca earned a Masters in Public Administration from Baruch College, CUNY in 2017. She spent more than a decade working for top international and national, award-winning public affairs and public relations firms advising cultural institutions, corporate foundations, sustainability initiatives, and much more on strategic communications and press relations. Most recently, Rebecca put her Baruch MPA to good use and started working in a communications role at a City agency.
Rebecca is proud to have the endorsements of Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, City Councilmember Ben Kallos, the East River Democratic Club, and Four Freedoms Democratic Club, among others.
