Basalt, Glenwood Springs
Rachel was born and raised in the Roaring Fork Valley, and graduated from Glenwood Springs High School in the spring of 2013. She always had a passion to help animals and after shadowing at a veterinary clinic, she decided to pursue that passion. Rachel graduated from the Veterinary Technology Program at Colorado Mountain College in 2016 with Phi Theta Kappa Honors, and became a Certified Veterinary Technician.
After completing her externship out of state, she realized that home was in the mountains and came back to Colorado. Rachel enjoys her career of helping animals, and she especially likes doing canine dental cleanings. She joined the Willits Vet team in 2018, and cannot picture herself in any other line of work. One day while Rachel was at work, she met an adoptable heeler pup. It was love at first sight. Rachel currently lives in Glenwood Springs with her turtle (Blant), and her adorable blue heeler (Mavis).
