Rachel was born in Kentucky and moved around a lot growing up. Through her close-knit family, she was introduced to Jesus at a young age. In high school, Rachel’s family moved to Lincoln, where she stayed to attend college and fell in love with her husband Brent.
While in college Rachel interned at City Impact, a faith-based leadership development organization. During her time there she developed a passion for asset-based community development and restored relationships. After college Rachel joined the City Impact staff and spent four years doing some of her favorite things: learning, writing, and connecting.
In 2015 a new job for Brent brought he and Rachel to Omaha. As they began to put down roots in their new home, God brought Rachel to inCOMMON to continue working in community development.
