Hey there! My name is Rachel Peñate. I am a Wisconsin girl at heart who currently resides in the great, yet terribly hot state of Arizona. When I was little I dreamed of becoming a professional figure skater, but instead found myself studying Education at Franciscan University of Steubenville, OH. After graduation, I spent two years teaching High School English, but through God's wisdom, in 2014, changed career paths to serve as Assistant to the Executive Vice President of Life Teen. A change that has been an incredible blessing. I love working in ministry!
There are so many things that I love, but what I consider myself to love most are the following: my job, Switchfoot, devouring a good book, baseball, the ocean, scented candles, running half-marathons, my dog Gus, husband Robbie, and above all—my Lord!
