Rachel is our resident Base professional, working at Home Base growing the Base Designs side of the company that focuses on custom team apparel. To the Base family, she is also known as Tots. Rachel is a 27 year old from Houston, TX and grew up swimming competitively on a club team from a young age, ultimately leading to two shoulder surgeries, but also ran cross country, a little bit of track, and played water polo.
She had an interest in triathlon beginning in high school from watching the ITU races and Ironman World Championships with her mom, but never knew how to get into the sport itself. Rachel went to swim and run cross country at Centenary College of Louisiana (200 fly & 200 IM), and in her junior year (2013), the triathlon club gave her an old Quintana Roo tri bike to start racing. She won her first sprint triathlon overall and was hooked from there. She completed her first Half Ironman in October of 2014 and began her focus on that distance. In 2018, Rachel began racing triathlon professionally and in the same year, moved to Boulder and began working for Base.
When she’s not training or working at Home Base, you can mostly likely find her with food or asleep!
