Everyone defines success differently. My goal is to help my clients get a clear, compelling picture of where they want to go, help them customize a plan to get there as quickly as possible and hold them accountable to following through.

Here’s a sample of what my clients say it’s like to work with me:

Rachel is an incredible Executive Coach who I have turned to repeatedly and recommended for her level headed counsel in approaching career decisions and other professional and management related scenarios. Rachel is especially effective because her approach to coaching is goal oriented and she maintains an incredibly high level of personal integrity.

Rachel is both empathetic and highly emotionally intelligent. These attributes in combination with her experience as a former marketing and HR professional make her incredibly well equipped to deal with almost any challenge. Executive coaching often comes at a high personal expense and I can attest that Rachel’s counsel is well worthwhile. I have personally grown and also seen many other examples of entrepreneurs hatched, managers improved and employees developed as a direct result of her engagement.
