Rachel has been passionate about all things musical and theatre since the age of two. From the moment she first watched Disney's Beauty and the Beast, life became all about dressing up and telling a story.
A native of the Adirondack Mountains, Rachel grew up in a community that fully supports the arts in its youth. She studied ballet at the Lake Placid School of Ballet and Dance, performed annually with the North Country Ballet Ensemble, and worked with local community and professional theatre groups. She also spent several summers attending the Crane Youth Music program studying vocal performance, winning an Outstanding Musician Award.
Rachel studied musical theatre at Russell Sage College before moving to New York City. She transferred to Hunter College, graduating magna cum laude with a BA in Dance and a minor in Music. She is a graduate of the One Year Professional Acting Program at The Barrow Group.
Rachel now lives, works, and performs in New York City.
When she is not performing or taking lessons, Rachel can be found reading historical fiction, watching Disney movies (still), plunking away at the piano, hiking her native mountains, and continuing her quest for the best mac and cheese in NYC.
