Andrew:  Born and raised in the Great Lakes Region of the United States of America in a small, farm town in the middle of Michigan State, Rachel is a small town girl at heart with big city dreams of transcending beyond the stratosphere of every single endeavor she boldly and passionately pursues with a razor sharp focus, while always following her heart.  

Rachel:  I was born and raised in a small farm town somewhere in the middle of Michigan.  However, my dad’s family is centered in Detroit, so I also spent a decent amount of time in the city, and we traveled a lot.  As far as my home life is concerned, it was an interesting mix of Irish Catholic and High German, living in a big house in the countryside with a few acres of land, all covered in fruit trees and other lush, green vegetation. 

I’m currently living in Tel Aviv, Israel; I moved here in the autumn of 2009.  It’s a complete contrast to Michigan, and I miss Michigan autumn—but certainly not the snow, and I love that now I live so close to the ocean and get at least 6 months of summer a year! 


Andrew:  Most people have to see something to believe it; but as a pure, pro-active ambitious enterprising woman, Rachel is able to believe in what she wants to bring to fruition first, and then make it happen with a no-retreat, no-surrender positive attitude.  So what’s the philosophy/paradigm in life of this winsome woman with an indomitable fighting spirit?

Rachel:  When I was growing up, many people told me to, above all, make sure I enjoy life, pursue things that truly matter to me, and to not get so caught up in things that don’t matter. It took me a while to realize what this truly meant for me, but now I’m happy to say that I live life to the fullest, trying hard not to waste a single moment on anything that detracts from the life I want for myself.


Andrew:  Rachel has learned to accept the things that she cannot change, and change the things that are truly within her power until they are resoundingly in her favor.  Her time is very precious to her, so every single second of every single minute of every single hour of every single day, she lives her life like if there is no tomorrow with neither hesitation nor regret, and as a result, she has produced some magnificent highlights in
