Rachel has always had a passion for musical theater. At three years old her dad signed her autograph book, "Never stop singing and dancing!" In high school and in college Rachel studied musical theater and opera performance while taking acting and dance classes. Since graduating from Westminster Choir College Rachel has gone on to study acting and improv at Primary Stages in NYC, and voice with Kate Johnson.
Rachel continues to perform leading roles in Carnegie Hall and Off-Broadway. Favorite roles include; Sylvie in The Odd Couple, Angel in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Polly in The Boy Friend, Laurey in Oklahoma!, Marian in The Music Man, Eliza in My Fair Lady, and Snow White.
Her breakout role in the feature film, Smothered, has lead to more film and TV work. As an actor with a disability, Rachel is working hard to advocate for inclusion in the arts. 20% of the American population is living with a disability, but less than 2% of the roles on TV feature characters with a disability. Her solo show, Inspiration Whore, has been praised for its exploration of the way today's society views disability.
