My name is Rachel Anne Grieder, and I graduated with a bachelor's degree in science education from Indiana Wesleyan University. I majored in both biology and chemistry. I was born and raised in the Normal, Illinois area, growing up on a small farm outside of town. I have two older brothers and a younger sister. Our house was pretty wild with six people under one roof! I love spending time outside, especially on my parents farm and on the beach during vacation. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Music is one of my passions. I love playing the violin!
