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

As a learning program manager, strategist, and instructional designer, I work to understand operational goals, process, products, and services, and then focus on crafting learning experiences optimized to teach learners comprehension of those subjects and application of 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.
