Her work experience includes a wide range of ages, from infant to preteen, special needs families, and unique family dynamics. Rachael also has a strong knowledge of nutrition and the effects food has on behaviors.

Rachael is a Lancaster native and is an alumni of the Penn State Nanny School, which sadly closed in the early 1990’s . She’s a proud mother of two and grandmother of one little girl she holds dear to her heart. In her spare time, Rachael enjoys bike trails with her husband, family dinners, and exploring.

Family Portrait

“Rachael was incredibly helpful during our nanny search. She understood the needs of our family and instrumental in finding someone that fit well within our home. We felt well informed and connected with the search as she screened each applicant. Finding an in home caregiver can be a consuming process but with Rachael spearheading the search we found someone with ease. We would definitely recommend her services and use her in the future.”
