When Rachel was two years old she began to attend Anacortes United Methodist Church with her family. It was at AUMC where Rachel was baptized and fell in love with Jesus and the Methodist faith. In 2002, when Rachel was eight years old, she moved to Kennewick and began to attend Kennewick First UMC with her parents and two sisters. She was an active youth in the United Methodist Youth program at Kennewick First from 3rd to 12th grade, participating in Funday, Jr. High, Confirmation, Sr. High, and several retreats and mission trips. After graduating from Southridge in 2012, Rachel attended WSU in Pullman, where she graduated in 2016 with her BS in Psychology and Human Development. The Lord called Rachel back home to the Tri-Cities, where she worked at Lourdes Counseling Center as a Mental Health Counselor and volunteered as a youth group leader at Kennewick First for two years. In the spring of 2018, the Lord’s plan for Rachel continued to unravel and she became the Youth Director at Kennewick First. Rachel loves to spend her time running outside, going to her family’s cabin in Dayton, WA, and playing with her nephew, Rhett.
