Like many children who had both parents in Starfleet, Rachel didn't see much of hers and as a result her and her brother's upbringing was done by her Aunt Laura and Uncle Rick. Both of whom had what Rachel considered normal jobs. Laura a para legal, and Rick owned and ran a shuttle shop. She got along wonderfully with her two cousins. She had friends aplenty and enjoyed going on fishing trips with her Uncle Rick and cousin Nathan. Kelly wasn't big on the outdoor activities but Rachel made sure to play with her even though she wasn't big on the girlie type fun.

On her 15th birthday, Rachel's brother Eric who was four years older than she, joined Starfleet and was off to the academy to become an engineer. It left a big hole in Rachel's life when he left even with being surrounded by the love of her aunt and uncle and cousins. When she made the decision to join as well, it wasn't out of the blue. She wanted to make a difference and dreamed of flying among the stars in a starship or even being stationed on one of the mighty starbases that dotted the system. She spend time at night in her bedroom reading the publicized SF logs and news feeds, which increased her desire to want to wear the uniform.

As a teen, Rachel had friends like most kids. But, she had one good friend, Eliya. A Trill who was living with a family on an exchange program. They became fast friends and considered themselves best friends after awhile. Doing just about everthing and telling each other everything in confidence. Not having the opportunity to really see other species, the concept of a Trill was daunting not to mention that of a joined Trill. Which when the time came, Eliya went through the procedure off world. Would she ever see her best friend again? Only time would tell.

Upon being accepted to the academy, Rachel took up a science course at first, thinking she wanted to become an archaeologist like her parents. It was fun, but not fullfilling as she had hoped. But, she also had a gift when it came to her organizational skills. This became apparent when she helped her Uncle in his shop taking care of his books and customer orders and appointments. So, when one of her instructors realized her potential, explaining to her that she was wasting her potential, with his guidance, Rachel switched her major to that of Operations. This she excelled at and upon graduating top twenty of her class, she was assigned to the Hyperion.

Following a spout as Second Officer and then Executive Officer, Rachel was reunited with her adopted Romulan Daughter and was temporarily demoted to care for her. However, for her continual performance above and beyond the call of duty, Captain Douglas Irvine promoted her back to Second Officer and Chief of Science.
