Rachael graduated with the 2013 class of Zionsville Community High School, where she played soccer and was involved in many other school activities. Rachael was to begin her freshman year at Indiana University, where she planned to study nursing and play club soccer. Rachael will be remembered for her exceptional kindness and giving spirit. She was an inexhaustible source of joy to others, brightening the world with her contagious laughter and energy. Rachael always found the good in others, and her presence brought out the best qualities in those who surrounded her.
