In addition to speaking all around the country and the world, she provides freshwater aquarium livestock, plants, and aquascaping materials from around the globe, personally interacting with every customer. Rachel produces educational content on her YouTube channel, including species spotlights and informational tips for the avid hobbyist. Rachel is a frequent contributor to Amazonas magazine and The Aquatic Gardener. She also wrote a book with co-author Mark Denaro entitled The 101 Best Freshwater Nano Species.
