About

A lil' About Me

Rachel hails from music-city Nashville, Tennessee where she got her start in marketing and public relations in the country music scene. Her experience ranges from writing copy for shot gun shells and jib furlers (now she’s writing Ruby and JavaScript) to creating rebranding strategies for 100-year-old nonprofit organizations. From the music, outdoor, textiles, nonprofit, and government sector, Rachel found herself in the tech industry – where she’d like to stay. She’s VP of Marketing for Quick Left, an award-winning software agency headquartered in Boulder, Colorado with offices in Portland, San Francisco and Denver. Rachel has a rough time with idle time, so she also co-founded the Colorado Women’s Cycling Project, co-organizes MTN Tech Marketing Meetup GroupWednesday Morning Velo and Boulder Startup Week, is a current board member for the Downtown Boulder Initiative, women’s committee member for the Bicycle Racing Association of Colorado (and former BoD member), and current advisory board member to the Denver Nordic Association, Opera Denver, and Inside the Orchestra. Her athletic ADD is just as bad, diving into new sports as quickly as she can obtain the gear. She’s an elite road and mountain biker, daily hot yoga addict, avid climber, trail runner, nordic skier, and is dabbling in biathlon after a failed attempt at motocross.

“Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives women a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel…the picture of free, untrammeled womanhood.”

-Susan B. Anthony

Ignite Boulder 28: Rewriting Memories

Ok, I really am not a consistent blogger. Mainly because I’m too busy updating client sites, Quick Left, and my cycling team Naked Women’s Racing. But, I figured I’d share this. Been speaking and teaching a lot more as of late: CU Boulder’s MBA classes by way of my good friend and professor – Dr. […]
