Rachel Cervenak
Terrapin Legal
Seattle, WA
A Midwesterner at heart, Rachel grew up in metro Detroit, went to college in East Lansing, and lived in “Ypsi” (Ann Arbor’s funky neighbor) a year before setting her sights on the Emerald City. Being someone who desires to transform the narrative of prohibitionist drug policy and, quite frankly, a lover of the outdoors, it seemed only natural to get out to the state of Washington. While at Michigan State University, she studied International Relations, Comparative Cultures & Politics, and Spanish and volunteered for a crisis hotline. Integral to her undergrad experience was co-leading a support program in the Peruvian Andes centered on leadership and mindfulness. Her senior thesis papers focused on community-based ayahuasca retreats and federal drug policy reform. Rachel is a Psychedelic Paralegal at Terrapin Legal, Co-Director of Responsible Entheogen Access & Community Healing (REACH), and has recently been accepted into Fireside Project as a Psychedelic Peer Support Line Volunteer. She is deeply grateful for the opportunity to bring her background in psychedelic policy to support values-aligned clients in the budding legal landscape. Ultimately, Rachel envisions a future where all people have access to psychedelics for personal, therapeutic, and spiritual use.
One concrete way I am implementing the PBA North Star Invitation to start within and to elevate the process. I will do this by believing in the not yet seen, surrounding myself with extraordinary people, and consciously shifting my focus to align with what I desire to create more of.
