Rachel Hirsch has built a niche for herself as a lawyer specializing in online marketing and advertising.
“My most significant professional accomplishment has been my ability to build a budding litigation practice … while competing in a male-dominated industry,” said Hirsch, a 2006 graduate of the University of Maryland School of Law and senior associate with the Washington, D.C.-based Ifrah Law.
But the mother of two also is proud of becoming a more well-rounded person over the past couple of years.
“So often we get lost in work and family and we rarely take time for ourselves or our community,” she said. “I am fortunate to have found an outlet that allows me to do both: Feel good about myself, while giving back to a community that has taken care of my family and friends.”
Her outlet is The Associated, a nonprofit Jewish philanthropy organization in Baltimore. Hirsch is a member of Dor Tikvah, the organization’s women’s leadership group, as well as the real estate committee, economic services council and caring commission.
“My service on the various boards allows me to make decisions about how critical dollars are spent on the community and where there is the need for the most help and charity,” she said.
