Rachel’s journey was not spent in one place to long due to mother being in the Army. She got to live in Killeen, Texas were Rachel learned to swim and love the water.

She would move to Lacey, Washington for a short spell then back to Baumholder Germany where she would receive the news that she had kidneys had failed at twelve years old and start the fight of her life. The family was quickly moved to Fort Myers Virginia to be close to the D.C. Children’s hospital. Rachel would get stable and then move to ElPaso, Texas where she would earn her GED.
