Orthodontic Financial Coordinator

Hi, my name is Rachel! I have been working with Dr. Jack since 2007. I love working with patients by helping them with their financial and insurance needs.

In my spare time, I love traveling the world. My most memorable travel adventure was a road trip along the Adriatic Coast in Croatia. My heart is in Europe and I can’t wait to go back! In 2019, my sweet little guy Maxwell was born and I look forward to experiencing this beautiful world with him! Feel free to say hello and chat with me if you love to travel as well!
