Rachel Brocker

Personal & Mission Statement

I am half German and grew up speaking German at home, surrounded by German culture. After high school, I moved to Berlin for approximately two years, working and attending school. In 2021 I graduated from the University of Maryland Law School. Since then, I’ve practiced law in DC. I would like to utilize my strong ties to the local community, and my passion for German culture to attract new members and support the foundation.

My name is Rachel Brocker. I am from the Washington, D.C. area and am half German. I grew up speaking German at home and surrounded by the German culture. After graduating from high school, I moved to Berlin, Germany, in the interest of learning more about my heritage and spending more time with my extended family. I lived in Berlin for approximately two years, working and attending school.

In 2015, I returned to complete my college degree at the University of Maryland. While there, I studied German and participated in German cultural events hosted on campus, in order to maintain a strong connection to the German community.

After completing my undergraduate degree, I immediately began pursuing my juris doctor at the University of Maryland School of Law. I graduated in 2021 and have since been working as a transactional attorney in D.C. I have been searching for a way to  continue my exposure to the German culture, and was elated to discover the German-American Heritage Foundation.

The mission of the Foundation aligns well with my values and appreciation of the German culture. I am interested in learning more, as well as spreading and sharing information and experiences with others. I have served as a director since early 2023.
