Rachel Heimann

The Foundation’s voice can reflect and amplify those of our grantees, and Koret’s grantees have a great deal to say. As a native Jewish San Franciscan, it’s an honor to publicize the influence and impact of Koret, which has become an institution in its own right, in the Bay Area and beyond.

Before moving back to San Francisco, Rachel worked as a researcher and analyst in Washington, D.C. for a government affairs consulting firm and a political action committee.
