Rachel is an oncology nurse who currently serves as the Director of Data Curation Services for a team of over 50 data curation specialists but has performed on stage from the tender age of 4. She has volunteered for community theaters in Middle Tennessee and Memphis both on stage and off for the past 25+ years and has gained artistic and technical knowledge by working with some of Memphis' most renowned designers, directors, and producers. "From the moment I started rehearsing as an orphan in Oliver! as a child, I have craved the magic of live theater--whether that be with other talented thespians on stage, creative technical directors backstage, or enthusiastic theater-goers in the House." Rachel has served two years as a community judge and is now a college judge.
