Affiliate of the year - Rachel Medina

I grew up in Dixon with 3 brothers and 3 sisters. Involved in FFA & 4H I raised sheep, chickens and rabbits. I played soccer and was a cheerleader at Dixon High School. I have 4 kids, Brandon- 19, a sophomore at Chapman University, Samuel- 16, a junior at Pioneer High, Hanna-13, 8th grade at Douglass and Easton-8, 3rd grade at Tafoya. I have lived in Woodland for 13 years. I opened my first business (Baby Barn, a children's consignment store on Main Street) at 21 years old. After selling that business I opened Nottingham, a children's boutique, also on Main Street in Woodland. I was involved in the kids' sports, volunteering to run the snack bar for Cal Ripken and coaching Hanna's cheer squad for several years. I joined Placer Title as a sales rep in June of 2014 and am very happy with the team I represent. I love going to work each day and look forward to the outings we have outside of work as well. I value the relationships I have with the girls inside the office and the many I have made throughout the Yolo AR community.
