About Rachel

When I was 15 years old my grandmother was diagnosed with cancer. She was such a pillar for me in my life and truly my best friend. I helped care for her often and am so glad that I had the opportunity to do so. Fast forward 13 years and I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease. It completely turned my life upside down. I was lucky to get diagnosed quickly and start treatment. I swore once I was better I would help others who needed help just like I did. After healing from Lyme I got hired at a school for children with special needs. I was an assistant teacher to children ages 1-4. Being their teacher was beyond rewarding and it filled me with so much joy to watch the children hit their milestones. I also volunteered at a therapeutic riding facility for children and adults with special needs. I aided them in their riding lessons, mounting, and dismounting the horses. Seeing my rider's mobility and balance improve each ride was something truly amazing. I love helping improve other's lives; there's really nothing more rewarding. I also have three amazing kids!

My role as teacher's assistant consisted of taking care of each child's needs and helping them with their schooling requirements and hit their developmental goals.

Leader, side walker

Jul 2016 - Oct 2018
S.I.R.E. Therapeutic riding
My role as a side walker consisted of walking beside the rider helping them stay balanced by doing either a thigh hold or heel hold for their riding lesson. The main goal as a side walker was to ensure the rider's safety at all times. As a leader my job was to ensure the horse was calm and confident and that the ride went smoothly. I also helped the riders mount their horse by using a mounting block or the lift for wheelchair bound riders.
