Rachel Parker

Rachel grew up in Lindale, Texas. She received her associate degree in social work from Tyler Junior College and her bachelor’s degree in business from the University of Texas at Tyler. She felt a calling from the Lord to work with the special need population from a young age due to helping care for her two brothers with IDD. She spent her summers serving individuals with IDD at a local school district and summer camps since 2006. In 2013 she found out about Breckenridge Village and knew this is where she felt called to be. She has served in many capacities here from part-time direct care staff to house manager, to day program group leader, and currently serves as the day program coordinator. She plans and manages the activities for the day program as well as being the case manager for the community participants. When not working, she enjoys time with her family, friends and finding different creative outlets.
