    Critically acclaimed, award-winning actress, director, dramaturg, teacher, and coach, Rachel has shared the stage and screen with such luminaries as Hal Linden, Ben Vereen, Roddy McDowall, Roger Daltrey, Jennifer Tilly, Joe Viterelli, Charlotte D'Amboise and more; and has been directed by such legends as Mike Ockrent, Susan Stroman, Graciela Daniele, Woody Allen, and more.

    As an actress, she is at home in both drama and comedy. SEE RAVE REVIEWS ON "PRESS" next page! NYC-based, she is now available worldwide having survived the K-12 years of both her children.

    You know Rachel, she is that woman who has faced more than her share of life's pain and challenges, yet still maintains a wry sense of humor while nursing her own unusual brew of strength, elegance, and quirkiness. Think Sigourney Weaver meets Harriet Harris - both of whom she's been compared to.

    Rachel is your:

  • Fierce Mother Lion to the nth degree

  • Type A Boss covertly battling her own imperfections

  • Saucy Matriarch with a pharmacy full of meds in her nightstand drawer!
