A thought partner committed to social change.
Let me help you light the way.

Hi, I’m Rachael.

I’m a writer, organizer, graphic designer, and communications strategist. I value authentic, honest collaboration and deep reflection that ignites action.
Whether you’re looking for support developing your individual brand, in need of curriculum to support your organization’s mission, or seeking to integrate mindfulness into your next meeting or retreat, I can help you illuminate your purpose, your message, and your path.


I love to collaborate with individuals, organizations, and grassroots groups oriented towards social change.
