Dr. Rachel was born and raised Green Bay, WI (and yes, that makes her a Packer fan!). She received her undergraduate degree from St. Cloud State University in Minnesota, and then attended veterinary school at the University of Wisconsin – Madison, graduating in early 2013. Dr. Rachel practiced veterinary medicine at a small animal hospital in West Virginia for nearly 2 years before moving out to Washington and falling in love with the Pacific Northwest.
Dr. Rachel’s specific interests include preventative care, weight management, internal medicine, training/behavioral medicine, and community/client outreach. One of her favorite things is to help teach new pet owners tips and tricks to raise their pets, especially in her puppy socialization class.
In her time away from work, she enjoys spending time with her husband and their two shelter dogs, Minsi and Mia (aka The Shmie), hiking, running, reading, baking, checking out new local restaurants and breweries, and traveling.
