Rachel has a deep love for all animals. Her bichon, Buddy, was her first dog and she spent much of her childhood with him by her side. Just over three years ago her now-husband, Dan, proposed when they adopted their current dog, Luna.

She also shares her love with her three rescued cats and an axolotl. When not spending time with her pets, Rachel runs a technical writing business and coaches competitive youth volleyball.

Her pets consistently win employee of the month for all of the help they give running her business including helping out on phone calls and sending emails that were still being drafted.

Rachel attended Marquette University and has degrees in both Civil and Environmental engineering.

Rachel also enjoys spending time with her husband Dan, traveling, both locally and internationally, reading all genres of books, creative writing, running, and playing volleyball.
