Rekha originally hails from the Detroit area by way of San Diego, Tijuana, Cusco Peru, and Chicago! Portland immediately won her over 10 years ago after a visit to see a friend. After earning her Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from American Intercontinental University, Rekha became an educator. She’s been working in education for over 10 years as both a teacher and a program coordinator. Having spent four of those 10 years in a public charter school, Rekha brings her solid business educational background as well as a deep understanding of the funding challenges charter schools face. She is thrilled to be at Charter School Capital where she can be a part of a solution that will allow teachers and staff to focus on doing the great work they strive to do! In her spare time, you can find her on a stand-up paddle board (when it’s sunny), at a park with her pup, Kylee, making music with her husband (they used to be in a band), doting on her adorable baby, Darby Lee, or practicing patience with her stubborn 18-year-old-kitty!
