About Rachel

I am a writer, editor, poet, and a lover of the ways communication enriches our lives and relationships. I also have many years of experience in childcare and nannying. I believe in more than just teaching facts - developing the whole child. Encouraging character. Kindness. And removing obstacles in learning so the big picture things can take place with less stress. Every child deserves these things.

I have a degree in English Literature, where I made all A's. I found that by studying drama I was able to understand people and life better. I took one class with a special teacher and ended up choosing an English degree, and every class I could take from my favorite teacher, because it taught me how to think. I'm thankful for the opportunity I was given, and I'd like to share it with others.

I studied drama, linguistics, French, child psychology, and sociology. I have worked as a proofreader for an oil and gas communications firm for many years. I also worked at a general communications firm as a writer, editor and odd-job girl. I have composed company manuals, instruction sheets and various other office communications for two medical offices.

I enjoy helping others, problem solving, encouraging others and mentoring of all sorts. Please let me know if you think we might be a good fit. I'd love to meet you.
