After working several years in Healthcare Technology, and then taking a short break to care for her two young boys, Rachael enthusiastically joined the Giving Artfully Kids team in January 2017.  It was her son that sealed the deal in her decision to finally get involved.  One morning as she told her 6 year old about Giving Artfully Kids and how interested she was in it, her son replied “Mom, you HAVE to do that! It sounds totally awesome and I would love to help you!” From that day on, she has been committed to spreading the word and establishing programs in new communities. Rachael is using her experience as an entrepreneurial small business owner and leader to buildprogram where she lives in Switzerland and is excited to help others as they embark of their adventure to empower children to make a difference.
