Rachel and relationships go together like a bottle of wine and the release of a new Netflix series. It just works.
At her core, Rachel is a people person. She excels at building relationships with everyone around her whether that’s with clients, media contacts or vendors. As a PR grad from Lee University, she enjoys helping people and seeing a project go from conception to execution, keeping client happiness and expectations top of mind at all times.
It’s not enough to meet a client’s goals for Rachel – she wants to exceed them. And she’s done just that for clients such as Blood Assurance, the Urban League of Greater Chattanooga and the Pat Summitt Foundation, to name a few.
Of all the projects she’s worked on, she’ll tell you one of her biggest accomplishments is orchestrating the creation and launch of a three-year workforce development campaign with the Bradley County/Cleveland Chamber of Commerce that connected people in the community with well-paying, sustainable careers by educating them that many jobs require only a two-year degree or less and no student loan debt.
But Rachel doesn’t always stay behind the scenes. One time, she got tickets to Live! With Regis and Kelly in NYC and she got a few minutes of air time when Kelly Ripa selected her to win the audience prize that day – $500 in kitchen appliances. Not the best prize for a young college student, but it makes for a great story to tell in her company bio years later.
When she’s not working or winning talk show prizes, Rachel is usually taking someone down in a game of ping pong (she’s weirdly good…) or crashing an all-men’s basketball game at the YMCA. Show ‘em how it’s done, Rach.
