A little bit about me…

My name is Rachel. I am 24 and For 10 years i have taken educational classes on being a positive encouragement in a child’s life & trained to care for children with past trauma. My parents have fostered many children and adopted 5 children over the past 15 years & I might be biased but this is my true calling! I grew up in a Large christian home, I’ve taken practice using the Montessori method & pride on “yes and” 🦋 I have my cpr certificate. My goals are to sell my art, impact the lives of children and adults, and one day own a retreat center. I look forward to meeting y’all!

"Rachel was always prompt, sweet, and kind. The second she arrived, it was right down to work… “give me Ellie” she would say. Although when she first started, Ellie didn’t understand much, she did know that she just met her new best friend. Rachel would play with her, feed her, take her for walks, change her, put her to sleep. Everything a mother or father would do., in a way that a mother or father would do it. As soon as she came through the door Ellie’s face would light up. Rachel helped with things around the house, and light meal prep/cooking. She’s awesome to talk to, and was a pleasure to be with everyday. You won’t regret having her be your son or daughters new best friend !"
