Im Rachel, a Branch Ambassador with the Charleston/Low Country branch in South Carolina. I have been volunteering with Hike it Baby since shortly after our branch formed in 2016. I love how Hike it Baby has enabled me to connect with others in my community and being able to instill a love and enthusiasm for the outdoors in my children.
