Rachel has worked as a court reporter for Network Reporting covering the southeast area of Michigan for 17 years, a majority of which she has also acted as a trainer for new reporters. She loves being out on the road, meeting new people, and just having different experiences on a daily basis.
When Rachel is not working, she devotes much of her time to advancing her Tai Chi Chuan skills. She is proficient in the 108 and 24 forms, and currently has training in the use of fans, sabre swords, and joes (broomstick without the brush) under her black belt. Soon Rachel will to learn the straight sword which she is eagerly anticipating.
Rachel also enjoys spending time in Beaverton at her mother’s lake house during the summer, as well as taking time out to read, and go shopping and antiquing, and just be a part of her community.
Heading to the Detroit area? Rachel loves all that Downtown Detroit has to offer, from dancing, to shopping, to eating. Check out her recommendations below!
Places to eat: I would recommend Slices Pizza just north of Campus Martius for something on a laid-back evening. If you just want great food in a more upscale atmosphere, Roast in the Westin Book Cadillac is my favorite steak ever!
Places to visit: I love visiting Campus Martius no matter the season because there is always something super fun to do there. I do enjoy MGM Grand Casino, especially the restaurants.
