What does Rachel do in her free time?  We’ll let her tell you in her own words:

“In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, being a “foodie”, and of course, going to the gym.  When I can, I follow my true passion, makeup artistry.  I often am hired to apply makeup for brides and their bridal parties.”

Want to hear what Rachel has to say about her hometown?

“Wallkill is a quiet community where everyone knows everyone and looks out for each other.  I am fortunate to work in the town where I grew up and went to school. Some of the teachers I had have become customers and I still get to see them. Although I don't live in the town anymore, but because I work here I am able to see my family on a weekly basis and that is so important to me.”
