Brand storytelling is an important business strategy. Brands who are telling real human interest stories are succeeding. Rachel helps her clients tell their stories through the right channel and at the specific time their audience needs it.
Rachel takes the time to get to know her clients like she would a friend or colleague before she
offers a tailored approach. She is dedicated to user experience, loves asking questions, and is passionate about sharing how brands are making a difference in people’s lives.

need of her unique skill sets and experiences.
