As a Latina Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area surrounded by gentrification and ever- widening wealth disparities, it has always been important for Rachel to use her voice and resources as an asset to support her community. Teaching production sound mixing classes for POC film students at Open Signal LABS community center in Portland Oregon, donating production time to social and racial justice projects and producing podcasts and web series for local Bay Area artists, it is incredibly important for her to share her knowledge of professional sound mixing, and help open doors for other women, femmes, LQBTQI, and people of color to join an industry that has historically kept us out.
