Rachael Capella

Like Wonder Woman, Rachael brings a sense of calm to any situation. She thoughtfully processes all suggestions and encourages feedback. In a busy room she can be found quietly putting in the work and making things happen.  
Super heroes devote their lives to serving others in need, and Rachael is now different.  She goes above and beyond helping not only her own department with powers of efficiency and integrity but also many other departments where she traditionally would have very little involvement.  Rachael’s super powers are truly remarkable because she always put others first.  While Rachael may not have a fancy superhero name or cool costume, she is strong, courageous and compassionate; thus, she has earned the respect of many of her BAMSI colleagues.
To end this quote from the original Wonder Woman comic really describes all that Rachael does for BAMSI, “Because no matter how small an act of kindness, generosity or simple positivity you put out into the world, it will make a difference.”
