2019 was a year full of opportunity for Rachel. She worked closely with director Patrick Hogue on the horror short Sew, which was selected for the Cine Fern Film Festival! Sew is currently featured on Crypt TV and Collective. Her film Last Looks made the rounds in the festival circuit earning multiple nominations and winning Best Comedy at the LA Mindfield Film Festival! On top of this, her short film The Golden Apple, directed by Terence Digan, also toured the festival circuit, with a nomination of Best Short Film at the Treasure Coast International Film Festival!
The year culminated in Rachel performing in Inland Valley Repertory's production of Fun Home as Medium Alison! Fun Home has been a dream show of Rachel's to work on since it's Broadway debut in 2015 and is thrilled to finally have her dream become a reality!
While 2020 did not have the beginning that any of us in the industry (or the world) expected, Rachel is keeping herself busy writing, working full time, annoying her neighbors with her vocal warm-ups, completing all the 1,000 piece puzzles she owns (four), and enjoying her foster pup. All while counting down the days until she can get on set again.
