Originally from Madison, WI, Rachel started performing at a young age. She graduated from Emerson College in Boston with a degree in Acting, Theatre Education and Dance. Since moving to LA, her work can be seen on stage as both a storyteller and comedian (The Comedy Store, cARTel: Collaborative Arts LA), on TV (Silicon Valley, Criminal Minds, Jane the Virgin), in commercials, as well as voicing a handful of video games. Rachel thrives on falling in love with story and maintaining a sense of play – both of which she’s continued to cultivate as a JRS community member. Rachel has been a part of the JRS family since 2011 and thrilled to join the associate faculty/TA program.
