Rachel has been in love with animals since she was a little girl. Throughout high school she worked at Layhill Animal Hospital with dreams of becoming a Veterinarian. She gave up that dream after fainting during a basic surgery and went off to college pursuing a career in Forensic Psychology. After working in the field for years, she gave up her career to follow her heart and start The Village Pet Au Pair, LLC. Rachel lives in Urbana, Maryland with her husband, their four children & beloved dog, Tigger.
