I am Rachel Turner of Wasilla, Alaska. I was born in Bitburg, Germany, while my father was stationed there in the Air Force. I grew up mostly in Alaska where I graduated high school from Chugiak High School. After high school, I worked as a Veterinary Technician in both Alaska and Oregon, where I worked with animals ranging from snakes, sugar gliders, hedgehogs, birds, dogs and cats. I have owned all sorts of reptiles including Florida alligators and a prairie dog. My love of animals follows me today with my 200 LB great Dane/Mastiff named Jake.
Jake and I share our house with my husband, Jason, and our two child...
