Past History

After moving from Chicago, Rachel joined her divorced parents, Nora and Hank, in Llanview in 1992 and immediately enrolled at Llanview University. While helping her friend Kevin Buchanan fight for his son, Kevin and Rachel became an item. Though Rachel stood by Kevin during the Marty Saybrooke rape case, the couple fizzled out, leaving Rachel to date Dr. Ben Price, to which she helped him uncover the cause of the flu that swept through Llanview.

Rachel warmed to her Uncle RJ, who came to town in later years, but was briefly disappointed when he tried to destroy her father's reputation. This adult rivalry went on for many years, and Rachel always tried to be the voice of reason. Feeling the pressure of college, expected to become as successful as her father, Rachel became hooked on drugs. Though Rachel was sent to rehab at St. Ann's, she later escaped, ran with the wrong crowd in New York City and found herself deeper into drugs, as well as prostitution!

Through the help of many, Rachel was brought home and overcame her addition. Her family had a scare when Nora admitted to having an affair with Hank's brother RJ, but after her paternity was revealed to be Hank's daughter, and through much healing, Rachel went into business with her Uncle RJ at Club Indigo.

Rachel found herself in quite the bind after befriending a Llanview newcomer Georgie Phillips, whose sole purpose was to seduce Rachel's stepfather Bo and make life hell for her mother Nora. After Georgie turned up dead, many were accused of her murder until the memories of Rachel killing her came to! Though Nora and Rachel briefly ran from the law, to avoid jail time, Rachael came forward and confessed and did six months in Statesville.

After her release, Rachel moved back to Chicago and threw herself into Social Work. She's visited Llanview a time of two over the years and made another return to help her mother and Matthew during his paralysis.

Rachel began dating Shaun and couldn't stand his arrogant brother, Greg, Matthew's doctor, when he came to town. As the tensions grew between the two, little by little a spark ignited - one neither could deny. However, her closeness to Schuyler Joplin, who Greg knew broke hospital regulations, and Rachel's unwillingness to tell Greg what she knew about it ultimately ended their relationship.

Shortly after, Rachel left Llanview to go be with her friend in Chicago.
