about rachel

Rachel’s writing is driven by her love for the humanities and her experience as a military attorney (eight years active, four years reserve). Her writing frequently addresses questions of war, discrimination, justice, family, and history. She’s a fan of the Oxford comma.

In October 2021, Rachel’s one-act play Soar debuted at Firehouse Theatre in Richmond, Virginia. An autobiographical musical which interweaves the conflicting demands of career, marriage, and endless war, Soar begins with an airborne operation gone awry.

Following a National Endowment for the Arts-supported fellowship for US military veterans, Rachel drafted Jump Baby, a full-length play loosely based on SoarJump Baby debuted at The Lynn Theatre in Midlothian, Virginia, in early 2023

Rachel is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Seattle University School of Law, and the US Army Airborne School. She’s an active member of the Dramatists Guild. She lives in Richmond, Virginia with her husband Adam, also an Army veteran, and their children.
