Rachael Volpe joined Veterans Outreach Center (VOC) in January 2016. Rachael holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Social Work from Roberts Wesleyan College, where she was part of the Phi Alpha Honor Society: Mu Omega Chapter. During her studies, Rachael worked with young mothers under the Successful Pathways program, volunteered with the local chapter of Horizons at the Harley School, and spent a semester abroad in Florence, Italy learning about local human service initiatives.
