Meet Our TEAM
As Rachel’s father, Murray got to see first-hand the caring nature Rachel showed towards others as she grew up. Rachel’s loving spirit is what inspired him to never let her name fade away. This foundation was formed in an effort to continue Rachel’s tradition of caring and support for everyone she touched. Murray has a B.S. degree in business administration from Drexel University, is a licensed CPA, and a member of the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA) and a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).
Chief Operating Officer, Co-Founder
As Rachel’s brother, Tyler got to grow up with Rachel that started as a sibling rivalry, but quickly transitioned into becoming best friends. He see’s the influences Rachel had on her peers, students, colleagues, & knows that Rachel is proud of Rachel’s Helping Hands Cancer Foundation with all that has been accomplished. Tyler is on a mission to continue to help cancer patients and families with the financial burden cancer plays.
Dr. Eric was married to our foundation’s inspiration, Rachel Paster. He also owns a family and cosmetic dental office in Royersford, PA called “The Royersford Dentist”. When he isn’t practicing dentistry or attending continuing education courses, he is caring for his sons, Caleb & Dylan, wife, Melissa, & Utley, their dog. As the owner and operator of a business, he has developed many skills needed to be an effective leader so we can make Rachel’s dream a reality!
As Rachel’s sister-in-law, Lauren only had the opportunity to get to know Rachel for a short two years, but quickly learned the love that she holds for everyone & everything in her life. Becoming part of this great cause, Lauren continues to feel closer & closer with Rachel as we spread the awareness of Rachel’s Helping Hands Cancer Foundation.
Director of Patient Outreach
As Rachel’s dear & true friend, Lauren C. is excited to join to help promote the cause, to ensure Rachel’s name is never forgotten, and most of all, thrilled to help Rachel’s legacy of goodness and selflessly doing for others. Lauren has worked in the Tredyffrin-Easttown School District for 15 years in 4th, 3rd, and primarily 2nd grade. Teaching 2nd grade is what allowed Lauren to cross paths with Rachel and formed a true friendship. Lauren enjoys Barre3, yoga, running, spending time with her two daughters, Ellie and Audrey, her husband, & many local family members.
