Rachel has been a member of The Nature Place community since the age of 11. She owes her love of the outdoors, her teaching degree, and her entire immediate family to her involvement with NPDC. Rachel met her husband, Drama Jon, at The Nature Place in 2005 and became a mom to a future Nature Place Camper, Eliza, in 2018.
Rachel is a high school special education and math teacher at a prep school in Manhattan during the school year. She holds a B.A. in Middle Childhood Education and an M.Ed in Science and Math Education. Rachel has previously been a camper, a co- and head counselor, and support staff member at The Nature Place and is excited to become part of the administration this summer. Her favorite outdoor activities include swimming, hiking, gardening, and bird watching.
