Rachel grew up a nature and animal lover and has always felt a special connection to the outdoors. During university she served as Director of Operations for Arnold Air Society, a community-service based organization, where she planned and participated in numerous service events benefiting her local community. Concurrent with graduating university she commissioned as an officer into the United States Air Force. Rachel now lives in Japan and makes videos about her experiences and cats, for a large, international audience. In helping found FFS she wants to once again connect with her community and the outdoors and use her reach online to encourage others to do the same.
