At Tripi, Rayna’s days are filled with campaign planning and strategy, production management, and editing and writing fundraising copy.

She also serves as a council member for the Kingston Food Coop. In her free time, she hikes the Hudson Valley, practices parkour and salsa dancing, and works on her personal project to read a book from every country in the world.
