We are happy to finally introduce you to, and we hope you'll join us in welcoming, the new Community Development Director, Rachel St. Pierre!
Rachel was hired as the City's Community Development Director in February of this year. Formerly employed by Heimburger Construction, Rachel has more than 6 years of experience in the construction trade.
Originally from Pennsylvania, Rachel has lived in Missouri for four years and Park Hills for one.
When asked what motivated her to apply for the position with the City, Rachel explained that she "has a strong desire to get more involved in her community with the hope of helping those she can, when she can." Rachel also noted that she "truly wants to make the community nice while encouraging others to get involved as well."
When she's not working, Rachel enjoys everything outdoors; especially running, hiking, and gardening, as well as spending lots of time with her four-legged children -- her dogs, Draco and Walker. She also enjoys long walks on the beach, Pina Coladas, and... oh, wait, that's for a different post! (She's got a great sense of humor that we all adore too!)
We are so excited to have Rachel as part of our City Team! She's is learning the ropes very quickly and has already begun doing some pretty impressive things; we predict that she's only just begun! Welcome to our City Family, Rachel!
