Rachel Eppler

Project Coordinator


Rachel is a recent graduate from Loyola University Chicago, where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Criminology. During her time at Loyola, Rachel worked for several different political candidates and nonprofits, including Rock the Vote and the Sierra Club. At these organizations, Rachel focused on advancing progressive politics, and getting out the vote for young people. Just before working for HitStrat, Rachel was a Campaign Director for No Democrat Left Behind, a grassroots coalition of Democrats running in deep red districts. As a Missourian herself (Let’s Go Blues!), Rachel is passionate about ensuring that young people in red districts and states are given the resources and platform that they need to make their voices heard.

In her free time, Rachel enjoys playing D&D with her friends, and attempting to finish the Sunday crossword.
