When Rachel was a young girl, she knew she wanted to work with animals. Her competitive side showed early, however, and she didn’t want to copy her cousin who also wanted to go into the Veterinary industry. Rachel just couldn’t say no to her calling though and is currently finishing her degree in Business Management and Sociology at Augsburg University with the hopes of becoming a Veterinary Practice Manager some day.
Rachel came to work at Golden Valley and Greenbrier Animal Hospitals in September of 2017. She started at the ground level as a Kennel Attendant and has since been trained to be a Veterinary Assistant. Rachel grew up in Shoreview and got her love for animals from her parents who could not live without a furry companion. She wanted to help animals because she feels they help people in so many ways.
In her free time, Rachel is an avid swimmer. She used to swim competitively and even participated in the 2009 Junior Olympics where she placed fourth in the 100 meter breast stroke. She also enjoys crocheting which she has turned into a small business on the side and currently shares her home with her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Patches.
