Staff Profile

Rachel Sprinkles-Strong


Office Manager | Senior Executive Assistant


Rachel joined Center for Land-Based Learning in March of 2017. As an Army brat, Rachel grew up all over the United States and also spent a year in Nuremberg, Germany – but it was her years spent on the Presidio in San Francisco for four years as a teenager, that imprinted Northern California as her true “home base”.

In 1999, when a career opportunity with AirTouch Cellular became available at their new Folsom campus, she took the leap and moved with her husband and cat from Ohio. She survived many mergers and acquisitions with the company that eventually became Verizon Wireless – holding several key positions from West Area Quality Assurance Associate Director to a National Project Manager role that oversaw the re-tooling of the call monitoring system that captured valuable customer data and interactions.

In 2011, Rachel left the corporate world of cellular phones and call center operations and embarked upon a new adventure of opening a mobile ice cream business off a custom made bicycle. This led her to an event manager position for a group of local restaurants. In working with various organizations across the Sacramento region, she discovered her passion for the non-profit community and started doing volunteer work. That volunteer work led her to set a goal of obtaining a position with a non-profit.

Rachel attended Ohio University in Athens, Ohio and was a journalism and communications major. Her hobbies include reading, gardening, travel and paper crafting.
