Hi, I’m Rachel.


Rachel Balabuszko is a veterinary nurse at Unity.

Like many people in the field of veterinary medicine, Rachel has enjoyed taking care of animals her entire life. In High School, she worked as a veterinary assistant in a private veterinary practice for two years.  She returned to school and graduated from Parkland College in Illinois with an Associate Degree in Veterinary Technology. After graduation, she worked at one of the only animal poison control centers in the U.S.   For the last several years, Rachel has worked at the Bucks County SPCA where she enjoys caring for all sorts of companion animals.

Rachel has a graduate degree in Anthropology. Her anthropological interest is in creating a biological profile (such as a person’s age and gender) by examining skeletal material.  She has also worked as an archaeologist in California.  Rachel’s interested in Anthropology continues and she is currently teaching online with a local community college.

Rachel lives with her husband, son, 3 cats, 2 dogs, and 1 water frog.
