Rachel Loube

Rachel Loube grew up in Silver Spring, MD. She graduated from Brandeis University with a degree in Sociology. Rachel worked at the New York Legal Assistance Group, for three years, as a paralegal. She advocated for recipients of welfare, food stamps, Medicare, and/or Medicaid. She represented clients at NY State Fair Hearings, working to try to recoup benefits that were incorrectly denied, reduced or discontinued. She is inspired by the films of George Cukor, Billy Wilder, Alfred Hitchcock, and really any movie musical or film made in black and white. Rachel loves slapstick comedies, such as “My Man Godfrey” starring the great Carole Lombard and William Powell. She is also a huge fan of Will Ferrell’s work, and the way that comedic film can be used as a means for social commentary.
