Rachael hails from the great state of Arizona. She grew up in a family with four brothers, all of whom she loves dearly like all good sisters do. From very young, she has always had a missionary heart and a desire to serve others. In college, she felt called to serve a year in China as a Catechism teacher while studying Chinese. After graduating from Northern Arizona University with a Bachelors in Social Work, she worked for a year with Catholic Charities in their homeless and housing program, being a missionary in every way that she could in her hometown.
After walking El Camino de Santiago de Compostela (The Way of St. James) in Spain she heard God very clearly calling her to foreign missions. She followed her family (Lou and Mary) to Family Missions Company and served as an Intern until, in 2015, she joined Intake and became a full-time missionary.
