In 1994 she graduated from Wayne Trace H.S. and moved to Antwerp,OH.  She has lived there ever since, although she is looking to make the move to Fort Wayne.  Prior to joining the O'DanieI team in August 2017, Rachelle was a stay at home mom for ten years.  Changes in her personal life required her to get a full time job again.  It was very difficult to be accepted back in the working world after that much "time off" so to speak. She has two amazing children,  Connar and Dayna. They have 1 cat her name is Yeow , but only because Connar couldn't say MEOW when he was little..  Hence, the cat started responding to Yeow. When not working she takes care of her mom at least 4 days a week after work. She has Dementia and is in an Assisted living facility here in Fort Wayne. She also enjoys Latin Ballroom Dancing, any activity with her kids, music(it can always turn a day around), painting, crocheting ( don't laugh!) and of course shopping.  She prides herself in always being honest. Always be kind even when it is hard. And helping others whenever it is possible.
