Welcome Rachel!

We are honored to introduce you to our new Director of Development, Rachel Segien. The third full-time member of our fundraising team, Rachel will be in charge of new business development, sponsorships and more.

Rachel has been a friend of the Ellie Fund since 2008 when she and her husband Matt hosted a bowling event in memory of Matt's Mom to benefit our mission.  She stayed in touch over the years, and helped with sponsor solicitation for last year's Oscar Night Boston Gala.  When we asked if she would ever leave the corporate world, she replied only if it were to work for the Ellie Fund.  Voila! Our great partnership was born.

Originally from Vermont, Rachel's a Northeastern Univeristy alumna who focused her career on radio sales before moving to AMP Agency where she thrived as their Director of Business Development. 

Her quick wit, can-do attitude, and wicked sense of humor fit right in with our team, plus she's ridiculously smart, strategic, and passionate about our mission.  We look forward to Rachel helping us reach our $1M goal by 2015.  To send her a friendly welcome or inquire about her love of cats, Newport, RI or cheese, you can reach her at rsegien@elliefund.org.
