Rachel Perry grew up in Madeira Beach, Florida and relocated to the Pacific Northwest for law school. Rachel is a former Rotary Youth Exchange Student and spent a year abroad in Miyagi, Japan. Her experience as an exchange student and learning a second language fueled her desire to be an attorney and provide top tier assistance in “translating” the law to work for her clients and achieve their goals. In her free time, Rachel enjoys visiting Portland’s farmer’s markets and trying her hand at creating new dishes. She additionally loves kickboxing, yoga, and at the end of the day, spending time on the couch with her cat, Nilla.
