Rachel, a summer resident of Nantucket since 1968, moved permanently to the Island in 1987 to practice law. She took a break from her practice to raise her three children with husband Edward Toole, and was a partner in the opening of Fahey and Fromagerie, a gourmet wine and food store. During that time, she also served as vice president of the Nantucket New School. Rachel joined the team at Remain in May of 2008 as its project manager.

These days, Rachel spends most of her time thinking about food on the island—how it gets here, who grows it and how it is distributed. Initially she managed Remain’s public/private partnerships with the Town of Nantucket, particularly focusing on the island’s transit and biking systems. Rachel’s 17 years with the New School helped shape her work organizing the partnerships and course offerings at the Nantucket Community Music Center and Nantucket Community School at 56 Centre Street.

She currently serves on the board of trustees of the Community Foundation for Nantucket. Rachel graduated from Yale University with a bachelor’s degree in English and received her law degree from Northeastern University School of Law.
