Rachel Schneider

Rachel Schneider is currently an Offender Re-Entry Housing Specialist at the Burlington Housing Authority, working with female ex-offenders re-integrating into the community to secure affordable housing. She is a 2012 graduate of the UVM BSW program and she completed her field practicum in the Offender Re-Entry Program. As an undergraduate, Rachel worked in leadership positions with Service Rendered and Slate Valley Teen Center (SVTC), two non-profits working to improve the lives of at risk adolescents in Vermont. Rachel’s decision to pursue social work stems from her desire to advance the goals of economic and social justice, commitment to making housing accessible for all, as well as from her experiences of growing up in rural Vermont. Rachel lives in Winooski, enjoys a good podcast, and spends her free time with friends and family.
