2021-2022 Americorps VISTA, Rachael Chromec
Rachael Chromec is the Stewardship Americorps VISTA for 2021-2022. She grew up in rural Vermont where the traditional family farms and small businesses that used to pocket the landscape have mostly closed due to rural America's struggle to survive the modern economic landscape. This helped mold her interest in helping solve the economic hardships that small communities and the working class face.
