Bio:

Originally from the East Coast, Rachel Sheikh is a graduate of Amherst College (2000) and Villanova Law (2005). Rachel began her legal career in 2005 as a prosecutor for the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office where she specialized in domestic violence and child abuse cases. In 2008, Rachel transitioned to the private sector by joining Klehr Harrison Harvey Branzburg LLP (a large Philadelphia law firm) as a litigation associate. At Klehr she broadened her trial practice to include all aspects of commercial litigation.

In the summer of 2011, Rachel relocated with her husband to Colorado and joined Fowler, Schimberg & Flanagan PC in Denver. Her practice consisted of a variety of litigation including negligence, commercial disputes, professional liability, insurance, and employment law. In addition to being licensed in Colorado, Rachel is also admitted in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. She is a member of the Colorado Bar Association, the Denver Bar Association and the Colorado Women's Bar Association.

In her spare time, Rachel enjoys exploring the mountains of Colorado with her husband, daughter, and boxer, practicing yoga, biking, and is always looking for new recipes.

Rachel is thrilled to join the Colorado Law community and looks forward to using her own personal experiences and networking to help students and alumni find the right job.  Among other duties, Rachel will be managing the on-campus interview program, expanding opportunities for students and graduates with law firms, and working with the faculty judicial clerkship committee to maximize school-year, summer and post-graduate clerkship opportunities.  Rachel looks forward to counseling students on career paths, interviewing skills and professional networking with a special focus on those students interested in private sector and judicial clerkship opportunities.
