Hailing from the great state of New Jersey, Rachel Lowen joined the UM ranks as an intern in 2006. Holding several positions in the early years – project manager, mash-up costume coordinator and office wench (among others) – she has spent the last five years spearheading UM’s merchandise and e–commerce operation. When not at her desk in the UMHQ, you can find her on the road coordinating umVIP operations, as an artist liaison at music festivals around the country, teaching yoga, or at home in the kitchen mastering the art of Jewish cooking. Grateful for the opportunity to work with such creative professionals, she plans to continue churning out innovative offerings from the UMHQ until the band covers The Wild, The Innocent, and the E Street Shuffle in its entirety, with horns. Rachel holds a degree in Interpersonal Communication from New York University.
