Since working with Rachel, I've seen her not only excel at the core elements of her job -- like press release development, securing placement, and event planning -- but also assisting in other tasks that extend well beyond the scope of her role like graphic design, partnership development, and fundraising. 

Rachel is intelligent, hardworking, and has played a key role in the success of our organization. She is a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her services to others.
