With BrownGreer since 2010, Rae currently manages a team of reviewers and analysts who work on the Fire Victim Trust, a $13.5 billion program created to resolve claims arising from the 2015 Butte Fire, 2017 North Bay Fires, and the 2018 Camp Fire in Northern California. She has also overseen and managed the process for issuing payments to fire victims in the Wildfire Assistance Program, a $105 million fund created to provide relief from the financial stress and burden for those who lost their homes.

Previously, Rae managed operations in BrownGreer’s New Orleans office and 18 additional locations along the Gulf Coast for the claims facility created as a result of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill. She developed the training program and performance metrics to measure success and ensure accurate outcomes for more than 178,000 claims.

Earlier in her work at BrownGreer, Rae oversaw the administration of hundreds of thousands of claims for the U.S. ASR Hip Settlement Program and Olmesartan (Benicar) Resolution Program and other similar engagements. Throughout the settlement, she assisted law firms and claimants with navigating the claims process and other inquiries related to the status of their claims or substantive explanations about the terms of the governing settlement documents.

Having grown up in Richmond, Virginia, Rae is passionate about serving underrepresented communities in the city. She volunteers with several organizations and is especially active in civic engagement and voter registration efforts.
