Rachael Mendez, assistant to Matthew Bond, grew up in the SageCrest family: Her mother, Cara, has been on the team since Rachael was four years old. Rachael started working with us as a summer receptionist while earning her bachelor's degree in business administration at San Francisco State. Today, she loves being involved in many aspects of the firm, from recruiting operations to event planning, and supporting our advisors in their work to help clients pursue their goals. Rachael spends most of her time with her family: husband, Sam, and two boys, the younger of whom they welcomed in 2022. When she gets a quiet moment, you'll find her immersed in one of the 50+ books she aims to read each year.
