Rachel was born and raised in New Mexico and on the neighboring Navajo reservation until she was 14. She then attended high school in Connecticut but returned to New Mexico for college because the mountains will always be home for her. She met her husband while working at Dion’s and she attended UNM. They married in Tijeras, NM in 2014 and welcomed their first son in 2016. Their second son arrived in 2021 during the pandemic. Rachel is currently the community engagement coodinator for ABQ Mom as well as Head Community Leader for the Community & Conversations Group. She also stays home with her two boys, one of which homeschools. If she is not busy organizing playdates and meet-ups for local moms, you can find her at a yoga class, a crafting event, or on a run on one of the various trails surrounding Albuquerque. Since entering motherhood in 2016, Rachel's been most passionate about bringing moms together in a safe space and being the mom friend to others that she wished she had when she was a newly minted Albuquerque mom.
