Rebekah Schaefer is a native Montanan, and grew up in Anaconda. She received her Bachelor’s in Nursing from Montana State University in 2011 and worked as a registered nurse at Benefis Hospital in Great Falls for six years. While the medical field has always been her passion, she had a strong interest in the law which dated back to her junior high and high school days, and it remained through college and her career as a nurse. During her time working as a nurse she realized that she could use her background as an RN in a legal career, which ultimately motivated her decision to go to law school.
Rebekah interned at Wall, McLean, & Gallagher the summer prior to her third year in law school and was thrilled to have the opportunity to continue to practice law at the same firm upon graduating in 2020. Much like nursing, Rebekah was attracted to the client centered mind set at Wall, McLean, & Gallagher and intends to utilize her experiences as a nurse in her abilities to relate to clients and keep their needs at the forefront. She also intends to use her medical background to assist clients in any case where it is applicable.
Rebekah enjoys baking, playing the piano, hunting, fishing, competing in CrossFit, and is an avid Chicago Cubs and Minnesota Vikings fan. She also enjoys volunteering her time teaching children in any capacity. Prior to returning to law school she volunteered her time at the Great Falls Rescue Mission assisting with after school programs for at-risk children or those who were living at the Rescue Mission. She hopes to have similar opportunities in Helena.
