Rachel and her family moved to Orono in 2000 and joined the Church of Universal Fellowship in 2009. She has played with the Russ Bodwell Handbell Choir since it was founded in 2011 and also sings in the CUF Senior Choir. Rachel sings in two other local choirs as well: Divisi and New Renaissance Singers. She has played and performed both instrumental and vocal music most of her life, but playing in a handbell choir has been a dream come true. Rachel and her husband John live in Orono with their daughter Nora.
