Originally from Omaha, Nebraska, Rachel recently moved to Des Moines from Chicago. She is currently in her last semester of college at Aurora University pursuing a bachelor’s degree in social work.
Rachel has always enjoyed her time spent doing volunteer work. Her favorite experience was in Chicago where she volunteered with a company called the Bread Truck.
