Rachel grew up caring for cows and kittens on her family’s Farmington, Minnesota dairy and crop farm—she’s been passionate about the welfare of animals ever since she was a little girl. She couldn’t be happier to jumpstart her career in veterinary medicine as a member of the Burnsville Parkway Animal Hospital team!
Rachel worked as a hair stylist and a Certified Nursing Assistant for several years before deciding to jump headfirst into her childhood passion: animal care. That’s when she joined the team here at Burnsville Parkway Animal Hospital! Rachel especially likes doting on each and every visiting pet and getting to witness firsthand the special bonds between animals and their owners.
In her time away from work, Rachel volunteers with the Minnesota Companion Rabbit Society and enjoys visiting the zoo and practicing her photography skills. She and her husband, Jake, live with three grumpy and stubborn betta fish: Louie, Blue, and Petey.
