Rachel’s passion for early childhood education can be traced back to her pre-professional days. Whether as a member of her high schools ROP Preschool class, or even further back assisting at her own mother’s in-home daycare, she has been on this path from the start. The reason? She love experiencing and helping a child’s growth! Right now, that’s teaching toddlers fundamental skills. Outside of work, Rachel enjoys getting more familiar with the PNW. Whether that be finding a new trail to hike, or a local restaurant to try. So far, her favorite place to venture off into is Mary S. Young Park, in Oregon.
