Management & Leadership


Rachel is an expert in transitions. She advises, guides, and speaks on how to use the tension around change to unleash your key staff, increase engagement, and improve overall organizational performance. Dynamic and charismatic leadership can have powerful results, but only when paired with excellence in communication and value of team.

Rachel brings a methodical and razor-sharp intellect to solve problems that suit client organization, its ideal culture, and business goals. She enjoys a good challenge and has over two decades of experience leading complex and ground-breaking achievements, managing big projects, and uniting diverse stakeholders.

She is a powerful advocate of community: in her own team, among her neighbors, and her network of clients, colleagues, and friends.

She has led and managed teams for over 20 years. Rachel is a Mensa PhD scientist, a certified Project Management Professional, a global citizen, a choral singer, and an art patroness. Her great-grandfather homesteaded in Brookings County, South Dakota, and she spent the formative years of her life on a small family farm. She finds beauty in the prairie, its big sky, and its people.
