Rachael is a Pacific Northwest transplant who originally hailed from the foothills of the Appalachian mountains. She grew up listening to bluegrass on the radio and started playing guitar in her early twenties. While she hardly-strictly played bluegrass, she's always had a twang. She fell in love with the Seattle women's bluegrass scene in 2015 and was thrilled to welcome The Handsome Ladies to Seattle. Rachael's day job is being a small animal veterinarian. She spends her free time playing music, crafting cat-related items, being outdoors and loafing around with her husband, Aaron.
