About Rachael

I grew up in Burnt Hills, NY, a small town in the Southern Adirondacks of Northeastern New York. I graduated from Wheaton College in 2014 with a degree in Biology and went on to receive my Masters degree from Wheaton in Christian Formation and Ministry/Outdoor Adventure Leadership in 2015. I enjoy being outside and being active, playing games, going on adventures, reading, and building relationships. In addition to working at HoneyRock, I enjoy coaching track and field in the local town of Three Lakes.

I was blessed to grow up in a Christian family with two wonderful parents and four crazy but awesome brothers. I grew up going to church with my family and was greatly impacted by Younglife Ministries when I was in middle school and high school. My faith developed slowly alongside various friends and mentors and eventually I sought out Wheaton College as an opportunity to receive a Christian Education and live in community with other believers. Wheaton challenged me in many ways but ultimately served to deepen, widen and strengthen my faith in innumerable ways.

I first came to HoneyRock as a student in the Summer Leadership School (SLS). During my SLS experience I was able to explore a hidden passion for ministry, leadership and the outdoors, which opened my heart to a future in outdoor ministry. After graduation in May of 2014 I drove north from Wheaton to HoneyRock to complete my masters degree and I never left! My favorite thing about HoneyRock is the many opportunities for leadership development and the transformation that occurs as people experience God through outdoor experiences, authentic community and daily learning opportunities. My passion is for young adults to discover the Christian vocation and learn to live responsibly and responsively in the world.
