Rachel was born and raised in Wahiawa and Mililani and attends Mililani High School. She started dancing at the age of nine under the direction of Wendy and Jeremy Gilbert at Pas De Deux Hawaii in 2011.

Over the years she's been a part of many Pas De Deux performances and competitions such as Spotlight Dance Competition, Pulse on Tour, Disneyland Dance the Magic, Youth America Grand Prix, Jump Tour, and The Dance Awards.

Throughout her eight years of dancing, Rachel has trained in ballet, jazz, contemporary, hula and tahitian and is very grateful for the directors and teachers that has guided her where she is today. She is thankful and excited to have this opportunity to share her love of dance to children of PDD.
