When Rachel is not walking in her “father’s footsteps,” she finds time to coach her son’s soccer teams and spend time with her two boys, two cats, one dog and one snake. She is an avid runner and has participated in several full and half marathons in California over the years. If she is not running around Santa Rosa, you’ll find her on the coast, where she loves to abalone dive, fish and go camping. When it’s time to relax, Rachel is either cooking gourmet meals for the whole neighborhood or gardening with her dog, Riley, and pet pig, Choners, at her side.
