Public Sector Talent Acquisition Lead
Rachael is a dynamic, results-driven professional. She has helped me on numerous occasions, including assisting me with navigating some pretty "rough waters". She has a wonderful, pleasant demeanor and strives to offer only the highest quality service and attention to everything she touches. After 2 minutes of speaking with Rachael, any conscientious professional would conclude that this is a person who has tremendous work ethic, innovative ideas, and knows how to influence others. I would whole-heartedly recommend her to assist in a huge variety of undertakings. I cannot say enough about her and her abilities!

Co-Director, Inns of Court Program
The George Washington University Law School
Rachael is an invaluable member of the Inns of Court Professional Development Advisory Council at GW Law and a dynamic and engaging speaker. She presented a well-received session on critical professional skills to 1Ls in our Inns of Court program. The students received an immediate benefit from her practical tips on Taking Ownership of Your Professional Presence and had the opportunity to reflect on how others perceive them and what they can be doing now to cultivate executive presence. I highly recommend her.

Working with Rachael was a great experience. Instead of trying to change my speaking style, she worked with me to maximize my preexisting strengths and personality to make me a better speaker. I found this much more effective than previous training sessions I've had with other coaches.
