Hi! I’m Rachel. Though I’m not much of a hat person, I wear many hats at work. I’m a writer, creative writing instructor, copywriter, and branding professional, assuming we can all agree that bathrobes are the attire of a modern-day professional.
When I’m not playing with words, I can be found playing with my dogs, cooking, painting, or taking a polar bear plunge.
I live in San Francisco, where I sometimes enjoy the views, but more often the fog. I frequently contribute book reviews to the San Francisco Chronicle, and I’m a volunteer with Empowerment Avenue. To keep up with my latest reading recs or musings on Lil Nas X, click here.
