Chief Executive Officer

Rachel Delport


Meet Rachel! She is an avid cow enthusiast but spends most of her time loving on her sweet baby girl, her three dogs, Josey Bell, Chloe and Colt and her cat, Kyro. When she’s not working, she enjoys spending time with family & friends, working on home décor projects, enjoying her husband’s cooking and spending time outdoors. Her never ending love for animals led her to a career at the Greenville Humane Society and has allowed her to fulfill her dream of becoming a Chief Executive Officer.
