While navigating her caregiving role and two young children, Jackson and Isabelle, she completed her Doctoral Degree in Education with an emphasis on Instructional Leadership. Rachel has always had a passion for our military community. While her husband was on active duty, she volunteered her time to strengthen the bonds of the military family. She created and executed many events to help our military service men and women find ways to reconnect with their children and spouses. This passion continued after her husband’s retirement. Today, in addition to her support of Caregivers on the Homefront she also co-facilitates the caregiver support group with Shawn which is designed to decrease isolation among veteran families while also creating an environment of empowerment and support to navigate this journey together. In her free time, she finds peace in painting, bullet journaling, reading, and traveling.
