Rachelle – FORD/RBA Model

Former NFL cheerleader, FORD/RBA Model, former Miss Arizona United States, spokesperson and advocate for the Kidney Association, host, I mean literally this girl does everything.  She can sell anything to anyone, not because she’s just that good at sales, but because Rachelle won’t sell you anything she doesn’t believe in, which is why more than half of my rolodex are people she has recommended me to – accountant, hair dresser, modeling agent, car salesman, this girl knows everyone you need to know.

Rachelle needed a little update for her modeling comp card and some new acting headshots, and while it was burning hot outside, we got nabbed some great images, as if it would be all that hard.

A fun little Q&A sesh with this darling.

Aside from modeling and acting, you are also a host, what are your current projects?
I have been so fortunate to work on various projects as an on camera host and live event emcee. I have done everything from corporate videos, to industrial projects, and interviewed celebrities both in personal interviews and on the red carpet and emceed live events as well.  Currently, I’m working as a host for FORD/RBA TV, Arizona Foothills Magazine, and on local a television station as well, and whatever my agent sends my way. I will also have the privilege of covering red carpet events in Los Angeles during this award season. My absolute favorite thing to do as a host is encourage and empower others to be great.

You are also the creator and spokesperson for MinMin Bears, tell me more about that.
I created MinMinBears to help educate and advocate for the organ donation process. After my mom’s life was saved by a kidney transplant in 2005, I realized the need for education and funding on such an important matter. MinMinBears were born and launched on April 12, 2012. They are continuing to raise money and awareness for organ donation, and we’re featured in The August 2012 issue of So! Scottsdale Magazine. You can learn more about how you can help or even purchase a MinMinbear at www.minminbear.com.

Who do you attribute your success to?
I would not be anything or anywhere without my Heavenly Father. Every achievement I have had, every opportunity and open door has come from Him. The talents I have been given are gifts that I strive to use for His glory. My faith is my core and makes me who I am. I never have to worry about a missed opportunity or a job I do not get. I rest in the fact the God has a plan for my life and I look to Him to provide all things, success included. I’m very grateful for all the blessings in my life as well as each and every job, big or small.

Share with me a few things you also love to do.
I love anything and everything relating to the entertainment which is why I started a video production company – I just can’t get enough of this industry.  I love to watch football, I’m a fanatic. I warn you not to bet against me during football season, because I will win every time! It’s sad, but true.  Love to dress my lhasa opso, Daisy, like my kid. I dress her in tutu’s, rhinestone hair clips, hot pink leashes and even tiaras – she’s my little princess!  I love to spend any open time I have with my friends, and my family, because they are my support system. The people in my life are everything to me.  I love to help people with their business goals and dreams and I love teaching people about hair and makeup, It’s the pageant girl in me!
