Rachel Hundley, Esq

Rachel Hundley moved to the Bay Area six years ago from the East Coast. A native of the Deep South, Rachel earned three undergraduate degrees from the University of Georgia, where she was also diagnosed with Crohn's Disease after showing symptoms since she was a teenager. While navigating her treatment options, Rachel earned a law degree from the University of North Carolina. After a few years working as a commercial litigation attorney in New York City, she headed west to pursue a different dream: entrepreneurship. 


Rachel chose Sonoma, California as her new home, where she started Drums & Crumbs, a fried chicken food truck and catering business most often seen in San Francisco.  Wanting to be more involved in her new community, Rachel ran for and won a seat on the Sonoma City Council in 2014. In 2017, Rachel was unanimously appointed as mayor, where she led the city through the devastating wildfires last October. 


In her spare time, Rachel still practices law and recently joined the Municipalities and Special Districts practice group at Meyers Nave in Oakland.
