To see more about Rachel’s writing and acting work, go to those pages. This page is dedicated to a more personal intimate look at Rachel. Rachel grew up in Colorado. She was an entrepreneur from the get-go. Before age 9, she had already taken a stab at starting her own “restaurant,” with her mom as chef and inviting over neighbors to eat (from menu she created). She had planned to write a book, with her friend Becka as illustrator. Upset when Becka didn’t keep her end of the bargain, she pushed on. Later, after a move to a new town, she took up a new gig — lemonade stands. They became more than just about lemonade. She sold her artwork, her mom’s amazing 7-up punch (for $1) and handmade name stickers and more. Her efforts were rewarded; the neighbors seemed to love it. One day, she rode her bike around the block and went door to door to invite kids to her home to watch movies for 10 cents each. Her mother was surprised when kids lined up and she accommodated them and even fed them, although the host (Rachel) could not be found– she was still out selling. Her mother was not pleased, and by the way, refused to charge the kids. But a good time was had by all who came by.
Rachel’s creative endeavors and imagination served her well, but it really wasn’t until she got out of college that she put them into a career as an actor, writer, producer, filmmaker, model and more.
