My only goal is to finally reach that one person on the street, where I once was; cold in pain and hopeless, so I can hold them. So I can let them know - there is another way.

This journey has been in motion for over a decade but it hit full throttle in Los Angeles where Rachael worked her way up through the hospitality industry and became the Captain and Expeditor at Chef Curtis Stones’ restaurant, Gwen. There she grew her understanding of upscale dining and was humbled as the 2018 Employee of the Year.

Following that, she ascended into the field of wine which led her to relocate back home to New York City. She completed the Viticulture & Vinification course from The American Sommelier Association in 2018.

Rachael passed her introductory course and exam through The Court of Master Sommeliers of America in the summer of 2018 in Houston, Texas.

Currently she is attending the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET), completing her Level 2 in Wine & Spirits. Following completion she will pursue Level 3 and finally her Level 4 Diploma in Wine.

Alongside her studies in wine, Rachael plans to go after a certification in Sake through WSET which will aide her in the position as the Service Manager and Sommelier at the new up and coming upscale Nikkei (Peruvian-Japanese) restaurant in Manhattan, Llama San, by acclaimed chef-owner Erik Ramirez and partner Juan Correa.

In June 2019 Rachael was declared an asset to tourism as a US Influencer and was flown to Bolivia by the Bolivian government and Chamber of Commerce to document the scene of culture, food and wine in multiple cities. She travelled through the sprawling city of La Paz, reached the edge of the world on the Salt Flats of Uyuni, explored the modern world of Santa Cruz and finally basked on vineyards in Tarija’s wine country - where she was honored with an award as a Distinguished Guest of the City by the local government.

Rachael plans to continue traveling as often as possible to document for others as well as broaden her understanding of food, wine, and culture. She desperately wants to allow her perception of reality to constantly be changed.

Rachael is a mental health advocate and social activist. She is a suicide survivor and diagnosed with Bipolar 1 Disorder.

Previously the Social Media Chair of the Greater Los Angeles Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), Rachael learned a lot about her community and spread the love and support to those affected by suicide. She also fundraises for the National Alliance on Mental Illnes (NAMI).

She first shared her story publicly at a Survivor Day event put on by the AFSP North New Jersey Chapter in hopes to raise awareness and understanding of what it is to be a suicide survivor and diagnosed with a mental illness.

 

Rachael advocates for alternative psychedelic medicine. She supports the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), a research and educational organization that develops medical, legal, and cultural contexts for people to benefit from the careful uses of psychedelics and marijuana.

Rachael shared her very personal story publicly at a Psymposia event in 2017. Psymposia shares fresh perspectives on how emerging psychedelic science and drug reform shape society.

She was interviewed by Paul Austin for The Third Wave, an organization that has a mission to change the way in which mainstream culture perceives psychedelic substances. You can listen to their podcast "Treating Bipolar Disorder with Psychedelicshere.

 

Rachael is a passionate writer. Read her article “Things Every Girl Can Learn From a Pornstar” at SimplySxy.com here

Check out her review on the Netflix documentary “Hot Girls Wanted” on AVN.com here.

She accomplished her first written piece of erotic fiction published by Start Midnight LLC in the book Asarotica, curated and edited by Asa Akira.

Rachael is currently working on her first book which will be a memoir of her life laid out in short stories and poetry. Most recently inspired by Charles Bukowski for his dark and raw work, her style of writing is sometimes aggressive and stream of consciousness based. Not meant to be cohesive but to invoke emotion through her experiences which will come off as fragmented.

 

As a previous and proud award winning adult performer she achieved representation as a Spiegler Girl, the top roster of performers, and retired in 2016.

Rachael is a vehement advocate for sex worker and women’s rights. She stands by her love of freedom, choice and the true movement that a woman is not defined by her past, her gender or her sexuality.

Being judged and bullied as a progressive pansexual woman has made her even more proud of her entire life accomplishments and she wants that only to let others know that there is no box anyone is to be put into. Being genuine to yourself is the healthiest life lived.
