Rachael has a knack for delivering advice that makes an immediate impact. What impresses me most is her authenticity that is demonstrated through her never-ending positive energy. She takes great care to explore the root cause of what ails an organization, team, or individual office. I go to her for advice for an organization with 120,000 employees. She has the ability to look through the lens of grounded emotional intelligence and business acumen. In our discussions she has gone from micro to macro and vice versa while providing relevant insight. Rachael brings with her a wealth of experience founded in academic theory which makes her a true practitioner and scholar.
My big question for Rachael was, how do I keep from maxing out as a working mom without compromising my ability to keep learning and moving forward in my field? In our jam-packed hour long session, she was able to help me identify which areas of my work I am most passionate about and reframe both my short-term and long term outlook. Her advice was both concrete and personal - I felt like she really understood me from just that short session.
“I am so glad to have had the support to move through this stressful period. Now I can think about my next career choice based on what I really want for myself.”

After having a baby, and moving from a very full time (travel heavy) job to working from home as a contractor, I needed to make some strategic decisions about next career steps with the desire to also be home with my daughter. I had to make a fundamental shift in how I approached career growth and goals. Rachael helped me talk through goals and set new standards for success.
