Rachelle was born in Phoenix but spent most of her early years in Texas. She relocated to Florida in 1989 and in 2002, she pursued a job in the veterinary field as a way "to pay the bill." She soon fell in love with the field and has since worked her way all the way up to being one of our most experienced technicians. In her spare time, this mom of 3 likes to relax, paint, bake and do crafts with her kids (and we especially look forward to her cookies). She also shares her home with 3 dogs, 1 cat, 1 lizard, and 1 boyfriend.
