“Rachel was a speaker at my event in the summer of 2017. She is a PHENOMENAL speaker and facilitator and was the highlight of my conference. I personally was forever changed by her message and I know she is going to make massive improvements to our world with each stage that she steps on. I most definitely will be booking her again!” -Rachel O’Rourke

Rachel’s magic is that she unleashes her warmth and humor on even the most tender and tense of issues. By bringing her fully sparked humanity to all she does, she ignites the humanity in us. Rachel is a gift to us all!

“Rachel is a fierce advocate for vulnerable children and families, a skilled speaker and coach, and a trusted and valued colleague. During her tenure at the National Equity Project, Rachel contributed to our knowledge and resource base in significant ways. She has a unique combination of leadership qualities and an entrepreneurial spirit. I could say much more about Rachel’s integrity, intellectual rigor, warm and generous presence, but I will leave it at that.”

-Lisa Lasky, Senior Director

Rachel is a force to be reckoned with. Her determination to bring peace and clarity to her environment, team and the world as a whole is something I deeply admire about her. She’s a speaker that you’ll want to have for sure.
