Rachel has always been interested in learning to dance. As a child her dance heroes included Shirly Temple, Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire!
Her first instructor (Zach Morris) introduced her to West Coast Swing and she fell in love with it! Dancing had become her passion. She was offered a general staff position at the Mark Ballas Studio in California through her now partner Zach Morris. She discovered her love of teaching as she started training in other styles of dance including: Country 2 Step, Night Club 2 Step, Salsa, Bachata, and the major ballroom dance styles. She is continuing to work towards advancing in her divisions.
