Rachel attended Stony Brook University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Science and Biology. She worked as an Emergency Medical Technician for several years before going to medical school. While she was there, she realized that she truly wanted to work with animals and had to make a career change. She enrolled in the Veterinary Science program at Suffolk County Community College and received her New York State license as a Veterinary Technician in December of 2012 and now loves what she does! In her spare time, Rachel enjoys spending time with her two amazing dogs- Oreo, a Boston Terrier, and Sassy, a chihuahua mix.
