Although an Iowa native for most of her life, Rachel was born in Pinehurst, North Carolina. She graduated from Drake University with bachelor degrees in marketing and insurance. While an insurance professional, Rachel’s passion was non-profit work, where she participated in event planning, mentoring, and fundraising. She also spent time in the city government serving as a Planning and Zoning Commissioner. Rachel married her husband Ryan in 2004, and they are blessed with three children, Brandt, Allegra, and Tate. She is also a dog mom to Ollie and Pebbles, spoiled pooches that all five Andersons adore.
The Andersons relocated to Waxhaw in 2017 and are enjoying the snow-less winters. Rachel is deeply passionate about people and community and is thrilled to share that passion with Five Stones. In her rare free time, she loves hosting in her home, spending time with friends and family, and exploring the Carolinas.
