Actor | Producer | Teaching Artist



I am originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where I grew up in a thriving theatre scene. I was hooked! Ended up studying acting for a while, at both Missouri State University (BFA Acting) and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (MA in Classical and Contemporary Text (Acting). 

Besides acting, I love reading, yoga, and providing private coaching for aspiring actors. Follow me on Instagram @rachelmschmeling to keep up on all things acting and yoga related! 



I completed my 200 hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training with Steph Wall (@stephwallyoga). Steph taught me well and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to share my passion for yoga with this NYC community. I work from a trauma-informed perspective and try to inspire a sense of empowerment and grounding through breath and movement.

I've been doing this acting this a while. No matter where my life takes me, I know it will always be a part of my life. And I know how tough this industry can get; and i'm here to help! I have been coaching and mentoring since my time in undergrad, and I continue to do so in New York. I offer audition prep, acting coaching, career coaching, and specialized workshops deigned specifically for you!
