That's where we come in...

It all started with a
one-way ticket to Vietnam...

I don't know a lot of people who have a story that starts like that, but here it is. Fresh out of journalism school and a little less than a year at a PR internship under my belt, I decided to switch things up and move to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

I wanted to see another part of the world, learn about different cultures, and grow personally and professionally.

I don't know a lot of people who have a story that starts like that, but here it is. Growing up in a small town in Ohio, I was always asking questions and curious about everything around me. Fresh out of journalism school and a little less than a year at a PR internship under my belt, I decided to switch things up and move to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

I wanted to see another part of the world. To learn about different cultures, and to grow personally and professionally. While living there for several years, I experienced the real power of travel—from riding a motorbike in a city of 8.9 million people to eating bugs in Cambodia, scuba diving in the Philippines, making lasting friends from all over the world, and so much more.

I discovered my passion for copywriting, content marketing and storytelling. It's what enabled me to write as a Vietnam Expert for Google Trips and contribute to magazines, to work as a content manager for a tech startup and a PR expert working with journalists from all over the world to experience Southeast Asia's luxury hotels.

It also brought me to Portland, Oregon to continue my work at a PR and marketing agency. It also brought me to Nike. One of the greatest storytellers in the world working as one of two digital copywriters in all of North America.

It's also what brought me to Portland, Oregon to continue my work at a PR and marketing agency helping social impact brands—from Kettle Brand, to Bob's Red Mill, and Travel Oregon—share their stories through influencer marketing campaigns, viral product launches, and media outreach. It also brought me to Nike. One of the greatest storytellers in the world working as one of two digital copywriters in all of North America. 

Every brand has a story...what's Rachel's?

The one thing all of those brands have in common? Stories. I believe that the power of words and storytelling can't be ignored.

In helping my clients share their products, ideas and services through effective copywriting and content strategy, I'm able to help them truly cut through the noise and make the impact they were destined to have. I can't wait to help you tell your story.

The one thing all of those brands have in common? Stories. And sharing those stories through with strategy and intention. I never had a work experience where the two didn't intertwine or have a direct impact on sales. It's why I started this business in the first place.

Meet The Team

In Portland & Beyond

With over a decade of marketing and writing experience across food and beverage, tech, travel, and sportswear industries—Rachel understands the power of stories through effective copywriting. In the studio, Rachel can be found at the helm developing messaging guides and copywriting strategies for her clients, collaborating with designers, and educating others on storytelling strategies. When she’s not in the studio, she can be found planning her next trip with her husband or sipping a glass of Oregon Pinot on her back patio when Portland’s weather wants to cooperate.

With a degree in consumer science and retail, Aimee has worked across event management, social media, marketing, and content creation. Aimee knows the value of project management, in addition to the power of strong imagery and marketing to convey a message. In the studio, Aimee oversees project deadlines, studio materials and makes sure every process is running smoothly. When she's not working, Aimee can be found soaking up the sun, enjoying pilates, or a patio drink with friends.

Having worked on projects for national brands, growing small businesses and female founders, Delaney's experience with journalism, copywriting and PR make her the perfect writing expert in the studio. Delaney assists Rachel in bringing projects to life both for the studio and for clients with attention to detail and a passion for telling great stories. When not writing or pitching, Delaney is likely flipping through a new cookbook, playing outside (skiing, hiking, you name it!) or researching restaurants and activities for her next trip's itinerary.

As an experienced copywriter, Sam lives and breathes all things storytelling. Nothing excites her more than collaborating with entrepreneurs and brands to hash out tailor-made brand stories and messaging guides that highlight their own unique journey. Sam enjoys wearing many hats and stepping into a brand's voice to ensure their vision and values are championed across all platforms. Out of the studio, Sam is cautiously improving her mountain biking skills alongside her husband or scoping out local coffee shops for the best iced vanilla latte the PNW has to offer.

"I've seen and read Rachel's work and I felt like it was exactly what I was looking for. I felt like she took my ideas and my vision and spoke about them in a way that I could never do it myself. I just regret I never came to her sooner."
