Rachel Brummert was born and raised in New Jersey; a Jersey Girl transplanted to the South in 2015.
She worked as a clinician until one fateful day when she went to her physician, who prescribed her Levaquin- a powerful, risky antibiotic- for a suspected sinus infection. She went from having a cough to being disabled within one month.
She funneled her frustration into advocating for others who have been harmed by the pharmaceutical and medical device industries. She has been trained by The National Center for Health Research, and by the U.S Food and Drug Administration.
Rachel currently serves as a Special Government Employee (SGE) for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. She also serves as a peer-reviewer for the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) and is a Contributor for Drugwatch and Medshadow Foundation. Formerly Executive Director of the Quinolone Vigilance Foundation, Rachel founded Patient Safety Impact in April 2017, and RSB Consulting in December 2018.
In her spare time, Rachel is an amateur astronomer, an avid reader, and active in Mecklenburg County government.
She currently resides in Charlotte, North Carolina with her husband and two adorable dogs.
