We've all seen her in the forums, giving out great advice, having fun, and being an example of a well put together portfolio.

So, if you've also noticed Rachel and her awesomeness, let her know!

And check out her port while you're at it too...Rachel

Such an awesome thread!

I agree.

Rachel is always one of the FIRST models providing anyone and everyone with helpful advice. She knows her stuff and is overall just awesome.

Rachel is Awesome, Besides being Beautiful, Intelligent, And having a Great sense of humor She is an Awesome model too. I drove over 3 hrs to work with her , and I would do it again, in a heartbeat.

She even rescued me when the exit was shut down due to an overturn semi. I called her as I was driving down the freeway she directed me to the next exit and met me there to follow her back to the location. I had a Great Time working with her, and someday would LOVE to get another chance.

Like the OP , I  too have seen her all over the forums  helping out others with her Great advice. Way to go Rach.
