Testimonials

Rachel is highly productive, extremely self-motivated, and by far one of the most organized and efficient people with whom I have ever worked.
— Joseph Pitzonka, PMP
I have witnessed her ideas come to life, from small conversations or sketches, into full-blown campaign-driven realities—with work selected by large companies with big impact (sometimes chosen over creative professionals with decades of industry experience).
— Kate Wolcott

Rachel was called on to do not only graphic design, but also key metric reporting, campaign development and analysis, etc. Never once did I view Rachel wince from the next activity, never once did she seem overwhelmed, but instead she accomplished all and helped the entire Marketing Team succeed.
— Laura Morris
She is knowledgable, ambitious and especially meticulous about her work, and it shines through in every project, little or big.
— Brandon Schlager

Let's work together!
