Position
Legislative Policy Assistant to House Majority Leader, State of New Hampshire

Rachel Cole works as a Legislative Policy Assistant to the New Hampshire House Majority Leader and Democratic Caucus. From a young age she was exposed to the unique privileges of living in New Hampshire that included opportunities like serendipitously meeting presidential candidates at the ice cream shop in her hometown and volunteering as a high schooler on several impactful grassroots campaigns. Raised by a strong-willed and impressive single mom with her two sisters, Rachel developed a deep appreciation for the influence and mentorship of women. Rachel graduated in 2017 from Simmons University in Boston, MA, a women's centered college, with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree in dual majors, Marketing and Management.

During college and immediately following, Rachel held several managerial and marketing roles with women-owned brands, establishing her career as a people-leader and team-builder. However, following the aftermath of the 2016 election, her continued enthusiasm for public policy led her to a fulfilling role in state government. She believes that politics is personal and is now able to intimately aid and observe the democratic process that impacts everyday life in the Granite State. Rachel is loyally devoted to supporting meaningful change, advancing equality, elevating women's issues, and building community in New Hampshire.

Rachel grew up on the New Hampshire seacoast where she fostered many interests including a passion for the outdoors, paddle-boarding, interior design, fashion, dogs, running, and like many Granite Staters, public policy and politics.
