|Rachel cuddles with Q before a run|
Rachel was born in the suburbs of the Twin Cities and some of her earliest memories are of camping in state parks and forests near her home. Her parents instilled in her a sense of adventure and respect for nature that has continued to be a foundation for how she views the world. She attended Whitman College in Walla Walla, WA and earned a Bachelors in Biology. Her degree has taken her all around the world for research including Costa Rica, North Carolina and Africa. Despite the thrills of traveling, Rachel always felt drawn to Minnesota and the north woods and returned home in 2012. She went on an adventure with Points Unknown in 2014 and fell in love with the dogs and quiet lifestyle at Irish Creek Homestead.
Please welcome Rachel to the Points Unknown team! She'll be with us through December, helping with fall and early winter training.
