Life and career[edit]

Rachel was born in Baltimore, attended the prestigious Park School of Baltimore, and began performing at Maryland's Center Stage. She is a graduate of the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University.[1]

In 2011, she was selected to perform in the New Faces Characters showcase at the prestigious Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal.[2] Around that same time, Rachel began appearing in a number of heavily viewed national commercials (including spots for Toyota, eBay, McDonald's, Wal-Mart, IHOP, and Dish Network) which increased her profile[1][3]
