Finding your passion is a dream almost everyone has. As children we’re often asked “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Rachel’s dream, and passion, was theatre: to be an actor. But so often life gets in the way the day-to-day turns into years and the next thing you know it feels like it may be too late to peruse that passion: the dream. 

Rachel is proof that you don’t have to let go of your dreams. It is never too late to become that person you said you wanted to grow up to be! Rachel first step into the stage in 2012 at Civic Theatre of Allentown’s production of A Christmas Carol, and since then, she has not stopped.
