Rachel currently lives in Cottage Grove with her very spoiled 6 year old Siberian Husky named Niko.  Niko especially enjoys playing with his toys and running circles in the back yard.  Winter is Niko's favorite season, but in the summer Niko and Rachel like to hang out by the pool and relax.

In Rachel's free time she likes to hang out with friends and family.  She spends most of her time with her boyfriend Kyle watching sports.  Rachel also loves food!
