A lil' About Me

Rachel hails from music-city Nashville, Tennessee where she got her start in marketing and public relations in the country music scene. Her experience ranges from writing copy for shot gun shells and jib furlers (now she’s writing Ruby and JavaScript) to creating rebranding strategies for 100-year-old nonprofit organizations. From the music, outdoor, textiles, nonprofit, and government sector, Rachel found herself in the tech industry – where she’d like to stay. She’s VP of MarComm for Quick Left, an award-winning software consultancy and product company headquartered in Boulder, Colorado. Rachel has a rough time with idle time, so she also co-founded the Colorado Women’s Cycling Project, co-organizes MTN Tech Marketing Meetup Group and Wednesday Morning Velo, is a current board member for the Downtown Boulder Initiative, women’s committee member for the Bicycle Racing Association of Colorado (and former BoD member), and current advisory board member to the Denver Nordic Association, Opera Denver, and Inside the Orchestra. Her athletic ADD is just as bad, diving into new sports as quickly as she can obtain the gear. She’s an elite road and mountain biker, daily hot yoga addict, avid climber, trail runner, nordic skier, and is dabbling in biathlon after a failed attempt at motocross.

“Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives women a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel…the picture of free, untrammeled womanhood.”

-Susan B. Anthony

Why I Go to Work Everyday

Because this…^ I love building teams, mentoring and coaching. Actually, I’ve talked to The Poet about this very topic recently because I expressed a desire to find a mentor but always find myself in a mentorship role due to my being a parent to my parents growing up. We were talking about a gift that I bought […]

Bitch in Business: Negotiate for Something

Ahhh the struggle with being on the spectrum. As a woman in business, it’s quite frustrating to not be taken seriously if you’re ‘too nice’, to be told you’re a bitch for being assertive, or to get hit on when you are trying to actually have a professional conversation with a client. I’ve experienced the gamut […]
