While we’re known to pop a celebratory bottle or two (or three…) at the office, Rachel brings a whole new meaning to the world “bubbly” at Vault. With an innately outgoing personality and an always-sunny outlook — not to mention awe-inspiring attention to detail and a fearless approach to media pitching — she has clients and colleagues alike toasting “cheers” to have her on their teams.
Rachel began her career in New York City with PR agency Development Counsellors International, where she worked in the tourism practice to promote travel destinations from the Finger Lakes to Peru (she was a double major in Communication and Spanish, after all). After travelling back closer to her roots outside of Philadelphia, she continued honing her PR skills as an account coordinator at Hornercom before settling in at Vault.
