“Wow! I loved Rachel. She’s a solid instructor. She could feel our energy throughout the session, and knew exactly how the group was feeling and call it out. Then, we’d all work through it together. Super awesome.”
— PIT Improv Student
 
“Rachel has a way of making a total group of strangers foster a comfortable and safe environment. She was always encouraging and nurturing. Even when you were being corrected, you knew it came from a place of wanting to see you do better.”
