Rachael is an Assistant Account Manager and Jr. Producer at Sterling-Rice Group where she manages projects on both the account and production side of business. After graduating from University of Colorado at Boulder with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Marketing , Rachael quickly started her career as a Marketing Coordinator at Einstein Restaurant Group . Although she gained a lot of knowledge, experience, and endless amounts of free bagels, she was determined that her next career move would be at Sterling-Rice Group. She persisted until she was first hired as contractor in December 2015, and then was later offered a permanent position in May 2016, and the rest is history.
Rachael has a love for movies, musicals and traveling, and enjoys skiing, painting, eating delicious food and spending time with her friends and family. When she’s not at works, she also volunteers for non-profits like B’nai B’rith Youth Organization, and is a board member of Jewish Women’s International (JWI), an organization that works to empower women and girls.
Rachael first decided she wanted to participate as a celebrity after attending DWBS the previous year to cheer on a fellow co-worker and remembers turning to friends to say, “That’s going to be me next year”. In preparation for the big competition, Rachael has learned it’s never too late, has found a true passion for dance, and plans to find ways to keep dance in her life even after Dancing with Boulder Stars is over.
