Rachel hails from strong agricultural roots, having been born and raised on a multi-generational dairy farm with her family, later transitioning the operation to a successful niche farm to market American Bison operation. She first became involved in the auction business in high school, helping a local auctioneer with all facets of the business, from pre-sale prep to after sale clerking duties. Upon graduation from UW-Platteville, she worked in the automotive industry before transitioning into consumer sales for a large John Deere Dealership. Rachel, along with her husband, Ben, reside on a small farm in New Hampton, Iowa with their three children where they raise livestock, hay, a large garden, and work hard to instill a strong work ethic and moral responsibility into the next generation. As a family, they enjoy working together, traveling, and making lasting memories.
