Rachel enjoys cooking, reading classic novels (try Middlemarch; you won't regret it), and knitting/crochet. Her crochet has been displayed in the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History (it's cool, it was an unjuried show about coral). When she's not being a homebody, she's tasting local D.C. brews or enjoying the eats at any of D.C.'s amazing restaurants.
