Rachel Wallace grew up in a small fishing town on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. She graduated from Vassar College in 2020 with a dual degree in German and Russian studies. She is excited to be spending a second year as a USTA in Innsbruck. In the past several years, she has also spent time living in Denmark, Germany, and Russia. She loves speaking and learning foreign languages and deepening cultural understanding through language. To that end, she has taught German and Danish at a summer language immersion camp in the past. Otherwise, she enjoys creative pursuits including photography, videography, music, and writing, as well as reading and sewing. She loves life in the mountains and spends most of her free time in the outdoors.
