Rachel Foltz

Assistant Director

Rachel began traveling to Honduras with her church when she was 13. At a young age, she noticed gaps in health care and education throughout the country and was determined to make a difference. In 2017, she received her degree as a physical therapist assistant and worked in a skilled nursing facility for five years. During that time, she joined CAMO’s international medical brigades, sharing her expertise in therapy with local nurses. Inspired by CAMO’s impact throughout the country, Rachel’s dream came true in 2023 when she was invited to join the organization full time. Her dedication, coupled with her experience and passion for making a meaningful difference, continues to drive positive change and progress within CAMO’s initiatives.
