Rachel and her husband Steven moved to Vermont originally to start a performing arts school.

Unfortunately, she developed a serious medical condition that has caused her to put her life on hold for the past several years. Her airways are failing from severe tracheobronchomalasia (shortened to TBM), a condition that causes trachea and bronchial airways to collapse. The underlying condition that brought about this health issue in her case was Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS).
