As a child, Rachael had various types of pets including a dog, multiple cats, birds and even a couple of ferrets. She’s definitely an introvert, but loves talking with people and getting to know them and the work they are doing to help not only the animals but their community as well! She spent many years in the corporate world before teaming up with Chris, the creator of Doobert and ARPA to help with animal rescue in early in 2018. Family is very important to her and she spends time with them as often as possible.
