Rachel Watts

Community Director

  • Ball State University - BS Advertising


Rachel is a midwest farmer’s daughter who has had a lifelong connection to nature and animals. While earning her BS in Advertising from Ball State, she traveled abroad and volunteered in remote communities in both Nicaragua and Thailand. These experiences ignited her passion for cultivating communities to live in sync with their natural environment, and she has been carving out her own path ever since. 

An environmentalist and a creative, Rachel leverages her skills to give life to her passion. Having worked in the Red River Gorge to experiencing agency life, she is happy to plant herself at White Pine. When she’s not here, Rachel is most commonly found to be camping, exploring music, or creating something.

Deepening her connection to nature is an important goal for Rachel at White Pine, and she is eager to cultivate the community while immersing herself into its roots.
