Rachel is a true native New Yorker, born and raised in Brooklyn. After college in upstate New York, she got a job at an ad agency in NYC, fell in love with the media business, and spent the next 20 years working with some of the biggest and best global brands in the world. Fifteen of those years, she spent at MEC, where she met and worked with Eamonn.
After 20 years, Rachel was looking for something different, with greater purpose. While at a retreat in the Sonoran Desert, Rachel heard a voice telling her that “change happens when the discomfort of the familiar outweighs the fear of the unknown.” Upon her return, Rachel resigned from her role as a WPP client lead and joined Eamonn at the Guardian US to lead Guardian Labs, the Guardian’s in-house content and innovation studio.
At the Guardian, Rachel led a team of creatives, journalists, strategists, designers, producers, and project managers to create award winning work for clients, without any compromise to the values of the Guardian.
Rachel left the Guardian in October 2016 to lay the groundwork for a crazy idea that would turn into FairShare.
Outside of work, Rachel and her husband Adam split their time between lower Manhattan and their house in the Hudson Valley, with their pack of animals.
