Mutual friends often told Rachel Lopez and Kirsten Vernon how alike they were, but it wasn’t until a chance encounter at a Mothers of Preeschoolers (MOPs) meeting that they discovered how right their friends had been.

“When we met, we knew right away we were soul sisters,” Kirsten says. Both women were busy moms with a passion for fashion, and when Rachel was offered an opportunity to host a television show on Sierra Community Access Television (SCA-TV 2), she knew Kirsten would make the perfect co-host.

The two can regularly be seen on The Where and Wears of El Dorado County, a program showcasing where to go and what to wear in El Dorado County; in addition, they highlight opportunities at local and international charities such as Hope House, which supports victims of domestic abuse; and Operation Christmas Child, an organization which sends holiday shoeboxes full of toys and necessities to children all over the world. And while on the show they take viewers anywhere from a vintage boutique to whitewater rafting on the American River, for Rachel and Kirsten, the most rewarding part is being able to give back to the community they love. “We do what we can to make a difference,” Kirsten shares.
