Rachel is a Chicago native and an adult survivor of childhood sexual, emotional/ physical abuse and trauma inflicted upon her by members of her family. A few words from her below:
"When I came out and tried to tell my truth as a teen, barely any of my family really believed a word I said and it made me feel very lonely. I vowed as an adult to never allow a child to feel that way and to listen no matter what.
My vision is to make every child facing any trauma feel that they are not alone and that they are loved and deserve a safe, happy home and life. As a child this is the one thing I needed and was not afforded. It takes a village to raise a happy, healthy child and I am here to stand in the gap for them and be the voice that for too long has gone unheard.
Be kind in all things."
