Rachel has been in the Veterinary field for 8 years, but has worked with a wide variety of animals, from sea creatures during her attendance at Hawaii Pacific University where she received a degree in Marine Biology, to eagles and large cats. Although she's enjoyed her experiences, small animal care has proved to be her favorite. When not at work Rachel loves spending her free time with her three four-legged kids Cowboy, a 12 year old chocolate lab, Ladybug, one eyed Pit/Mastiff mix and Dublin a very energetic 4 month old Golden Retriever. Sunny afternoons are usually spent with Ladybug showing off her soccer skills at their favorite dog park on Whidbey Island or at the beach where Cowboy loves nothing more than jumping off the dock and swimming to shore. When not with her dogs, she also enjoys horseback riding, hiking, and exploring Washington's natural wonders.
