Dr. Rachel grew up in the Midwest – born and raised in Green Bay, WI (and yes, that makes her a Packer fan!). She graduated from St. Cloud State University in 2009 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biomedical Science. She then attended veterinary school at the University of Wisconsin – Madison, and graduated in early 2013. Dr. Rachel practiced veterinary medicine at a small animal hospital in West Virginia for about 2 years before moving out to Washington and becoming an associate veterinarian at North Creek Pet Hospital.
Dr. Rachel’s specific interests include small animal medicine, preventative care, and training or behavioral medicine. She also teaches a puppy socialization class at the hospital. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and their two shelter dogs - Minsi, a 6 year old terrier mix and Mia, a 4 year old spaniel mix - hiking, running, reading, spending time with friends, baking and traveling.
