I’m Rachel! Thanks for checking me out.
Before we take our pants off, let’s get to know each another.
I was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma where I developed an affinity for cowboy boots and cheese grits. After attending Stanford University for my BA, I remained in Northern California’s Bay Area, which is now home. I live with my dog, Georgie, and a menagerie of houseplants in San Francisco.
You can find my writing in a number of places on the internet, including The San Francisco Chronicle, The Atlantic.com, and Food52.com.
In addition to writing, I enjoy making jewelry, painting, assembling collages, studying Italian, cooking, hiking, traveling, and/or learning to DJ.
For four years, I worked as the Creative Director at Clearly Kombucha, where I oversaw brand voice, marketing campaigns, and strategy.
I am currently pursuing an MFA in Creative Writing through UC Riverside’s Low Residency program as well as a Novel Writing Certificate through Stanford University’s Continuing Studies Department.
