Little did Rachel know that after graduating from the University of Minnesota in December of 2019 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Retail Merchandising, her plans for a small hiatus before conducting a meaningful job search would be kiboshed by a global pandemic. But with the pluck of an only child, she did not let it derail her. She kept moving. Literally. Rachel is a dancer, as well as a dance instructor. Through dance, she was able to stay limber for what the future would hold. Through music, movement, creativity, athleticism, and teaching, she was able to stay connected to the dance community, even in times of isolation.

Now she’s a part of an additional community: the design community. Just as dance can be independent or collaborative, so too is the role of Showroom Specialist. Rachel enjoys balancing all of it: meeting guests and clients, amassing floor covering knowledge, supporting the INTERSOURCE team, and managing every niche and nuance of the showroom. It takes exceptional coordination, and Rachel’s got all the right moves.
