Rachel is a dancer, actress and singer based in Chicago.


Rachel just closed CCPA’s world-premiere production of Dreamsters, written by Tammy Mader and Ian C. Weber, where she originated the role of Riley.

Before that, she worked on a devised Shakespeare and dance production titled A Wave O’ The Sea, directed by Sarah Taylor, at the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University. She was a dancer and featured performer.


Rachel is currently a rising senior earning her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre with a Dance Emphasis at Roosevelt University’s Chicago College of Performing Arts (CCPA). 

She is an alumni of The Broadway Collective, a rigorous musical theatre academy, where her award-winning coaches and mentors included Robert Hartwell (Broadway performer and Broadway Collective Founder and CEO) and Kate Lumpkin, CSA (Casting Director).

She also takes private voice lessons with her coach Rebecca Schorsch at the Chicago College of Performing Arts.

She has trained in various dance styles (ballet, jazz, tap, contemporary, lyrical, hip hop, modern, musical theatre, acrobatics) for 18 years.


  • Performed as a featured dancer and the dance captain for CCPA’s world premiere production of A Wave O’ The Sea, directed by Sarah Taylor
  • Served as a swing in CCPA’s production of 42nd Street, directed by Tammy Mader
  • Performed as a dancer in the Goldwell Global Zoom Live Event with choreography by renowned choreographer and director, Kevan Allen
  • Appeared as a dancer in the film, Untapped Together (directors Matthew and Jared Young)


Rachel is influenced by Ariana DeBose, Hugh Jackman, Derek Hough and Misty Copeland. She is inspired by a wide range of artistic styles including classic choreography by Agnes de Mille, Gower Champion, Fred Astaire and Bob Fosse.


When she’s not training, rehearsing or performing, you can find her travelling, choreographing her own dance pieces, reading or playing cards with her family.

She’s grateful for her family, mentors, and the performing arts community for believing in her ability, consistently pushing her to be better and always holding her to a high standard of excellence.


Rachel’s goal each day is to be the hardest worker in the room. As Stephen King said himself, “Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.”
