Rachel comes to us with a servant leadership heart and an advocate. Her professional background is in senior living healthcare management and she has held various director roles in CBRFs and SNFs overseeing Operations, HR, Dietary, Nursing, Marketing and Life Enrichment.
She is native to the Chicagoland area and earned her bachelor’s degree from Northern Michigan University in Early Childhood Education and Spanish. In 2017 she completed the Nursing Home Administrator course through UW-Madison. During her tenure serving older adults, she has led various support groups and assisted in respite care placement. Rachel has seen firsthand how care-giving can take mental, physical and emotional toll on individuals. Her message to caregivers is what you hear on an airplane, “put your oxygen mask on first before assisting others.”
Rachel lives in Appleton with her husband Matt, daughter Layna, and two German Shepherds Oak and Hazel. In her free time, she enjoys anything basketball, especially watching her daughter play, photography, travel, interior design and lazy Sundays with her family.
She will begin her career with RCAW on Monday, February 25, 2019.
