Rachel grew up in Easthampton, where she attended Easthampton High School. Throughout her childhood, she was always surrounded by animals, and she had the pleasure of fostering dogs with her family as well. Unsurprisingly, she now harbors a deep love for animals of all shapes, colors, and sizes.
Rachel is currently attending UMass for their pre-vet program, and plans to go to veterinary school after she earns her Bachelor’s. Outside of school and work, she lives with her mom, dad, niece, and their big animal family, which consists of two dogs, Stellaluna and Teddie, a bunny named Otto, a bird named Jasper, and some chickens to round out the crew! When she isn’t playing with her dogs, she can be found kayaking, hiking, and working out.
