Rachel Hampe 

Rachel Hampe proudest when she has an impact on someone's life

CONCORD - Rachel Hampe has garnered an impressive list of accomplishments, from her professional work as an attorney to her volunteer efforts for nonprofit organizations in the capital area.

Ask what's she proudest of, she replies, 'Any time I make a positive impact on somebody's life or on the community.'

Hampe is a senior attorney at McLane, Graf, Raulerson & Middleton, P.A., where colleagues say she goes out of her way to mentor young attorneys. She was selected by Super Lawyers for its 'New England Rising Stars 2011' and she won the Fisher Cats Bellwether Community Champion Award last year.

She previously won the Jon Meyer Award from New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union Foundation for her pro bono work.

Hampe serves on the boards of Girls Inc. of New Hampshire, the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire and Red River Theatres. She is a member of the steering committee for the Capitol Center for the Arts' Ghostlight Society.

All her volunteer activities, Hampe said, are about 'strengthening community.' Red River Theatres, for instance, 'was all about creating something for the community that would bring people together to share ideas, and be a fun place for everybody to go, and help build downtown.'

Girls Inc. strengthens the community 'by providing a safe and fun place for girls to go,' she said. And her work on the World Affairs Council reflects Hampe's interests in travel and international affairs.

Hampe also was a volunteer for the Obama campaign in 2008, and a poll monitor during the presidential primary.

All that doesn't leave her much free time, but when she does have some, she loves to travel. If she could be anywhere in the world, she said, 'It would be in a tiny village in southwest France, where I have friends that I've known since I was 15 when I went on an exchange program.'

Hampe, who lives in Hopkinton, is a graduate of Hopkinton High School, Bates College and the University of Connecticut School of Law.

She turns 40 in August; the milestone, she said, 'is making me reflect on the things that I've done in my life and the opportunities that I've had.'

Asked where she sees herself in 10 years, Hampe replied, 'I just hope to continue working and being respected in the legal community and the community in general in New Hampshire.'
