Rachael is originally from Spray, Oregon where she was raised in a big family on a cattle ranch. She had goals of playing basketball in college and was inspired to pursue coaching by the influential coaches she had as an athlete. In her collegiate basketball career at Trinity Bible College, she was a two-time Conference MVP, North Central Player of the Year and four-time All-American.
After finishing her undergrad and even fulfilling the dream of playing for a short while overseas, she married her best friend, Jordan Nowell. Together, they are enjoying the doors God has opened for them to pour back into the lives of student-athletes through the avenue of sports.
