Rachelle Rasmussen

Bobsled and Skeleton

Rachelle decided to get involved in the sport of skeleton after watching the 2006 olympics.  She attended Sonoma State University and graduated in 2006 with a degree in Human Development and a minor in Sociology.  While at Sonoma State she played women's lacrosse.
