About Me

I'm Rachel, and I'm passionate about teaching people new things. 

As a content strategist and instructional designer, I work to understand process, products, and services, and then focus on crafting learning scenarios optimized to teach comprehension of those subjects and then apply their understanding. 

As an art advisor, curator, and arts professional, I try to create a comfortable dialogue. I use juxtaposition, comparison, and contextualization to educate.
