Rachel Marie D'Avino
Birth: Jul. 17, 1983
Waterbury
New Haven County
Connecticut, USA
Death: Dec. 14, 2012
Newtown
Fairfield County
Connecticut, USA

Rachel was a 2001 graduate of Nonnewaug High School. She went on to receive her Bachelor's degree from the University of Hartford, her Masters Degree from Post University, and was working towards her Doctorate degree from University of St. Joseph of Hartford. Rachel had completed her final requirements to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. Her presence and tremendous smile brightened any room she entered. Rachel loved animals, cooking, baking, photography, and karate. She was an adoring big sister who cherished her two younger siblings like they were her own children. Her passion, however, was her occupation as a behavioral therapist working with children within the autism spectrum. She had worked in various positions throughout her career providing behavioral therapy to children with hopes of helping them develop into happy and healthy adults. She integrated these children into her daily life; often taking them into her home, hosting holidays and crafting parties for them. She taught them and treated them like family. Her maternal nature, understanding, and sense of patience with the learning disabled were truly gifts she possessed. She will be forever missed by her parents, sisters and brothers, grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins, and her best friend and fiance.

Rachel was a victim of the tragic events which took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
