LiFT Student Support Specialist

Rachel Hernandez

Born and raised in New York City and second oldest of four.  In 1999 my family and I relocated from The Bronx to Tampa, FL.   Since moving to Tampa I completed my Bachelor of Science from Nova Southeastern University and Master of Arts from Webster University.  l have extensive experience working with children and families in a variety of settings such as school and in-home. 

I am excited and looking forward to being a part of LiFT Academy as the Student Support Specialist and serving the families and students at LiFT.  My goal is to ensure families and students receive the services and needs they need to thrive and succeed.    

I like to spend time with my husband of 28 years, two adult sons ages 26 and 24.  I also enjoy going to the beach, relaxing binge-watching Netflix, and reading.
