Originally from Minnesota, a ski vacation brought Rachael to Crested Butte at age fifteen. Rachael returned to this area to attend Western State College, and graduated Cum Laude with a BA in Communications and Business. After moving to Crested Butte, Rachael pursued a career as a professional snowboarder, achieving numerous top five finishes, including the national title in the 2001 U.S. Extreme Snowboarding Championship. When it became time to transition from competing professionally into a new career, choosing real estate came naturally to Rachael. She brings her same passion, enthusiasm and competitive edge to the real estate world.
