about Rachel

I graduated with a BA in psychology from the University of Pennsylvania, worked in research and writing positions with two Philadelphia nonprofits, then started Both is Better LLC (now MULTIRACHEL LLC) in 2002; I now have over 15 years of experience using my writing, graphic design, art direction and project management skills for the public, nonprofit and private sectors of Philadelphia, New York and New Jersey.  In 2012, I completed a rigorous survey of topics in nonprofit governance and executive leadership as part of the nonprofit management post-baccalaureate certificate program at Johns Hopkins University.

As a writer, I’ve published over forty essays and articles. My work has appeared in Writer’s Digest, Roger Ebert’s Journal on the Chicago Sun-Times website, AAA World, The Pennsylvania Gazette and Philadelphia Weekly, among other print and online publications. I’ve also written extensively about medicine and healthcare for a major healthcare system, Virtua, in South Jersey.

Most recently, I was the national director of communications for the Center for Employment Opportunities. The organization operated from 18 offices in six states, with headquarters in NYC, and is a leading provider of comprehensive employment services exclusively for formerly incarcerated men and women. To have used my creative gifts for the benefit of their mission and program goals remains deeply gratifying.
