Hey there!
Welcome to my site! I'm Rachel.
I’m an award-winning content creator, exhibited artist and the CEO/Creative Director of Blue Lotus Collective, a digital marketing agency. I currently call Los Angeles my home but I hail from the beautifully rich streets of NYC, where I studied at the School of Visual Arts and Columbia University, and spent more than 15 years working as a museum program curator. When I moved to LA, I caught the writing bug and started a blog. My life forever changed. I quickly navigated through the ever-changing world of the internet as a lifestyle influencer, digital account executive, social media director, speaker and influencer relations specialist. If I’m not creating content for brands or executing the direction of their online presence, I’m painting, hanging out with my family or enjoying my perennial life as a foodie and wine connoisseur. If you love all things entrepreneurship, style and living well, you’ve come to the right place!

Word for 2019: Beautify

My word for 2017 was Vivacious. I chose that word because I had been unwell for so long, I was determined to do what it took to feel good again. Alive. Energetic. Vibrant. In retrospect, that was a big word for me at the time. I had to do a lot of work. My TMJ disorder wasn't just jaw clicking. ... VIEW POST

The blogging struggle

I was just about to call it semi-quits on blogging. I say semi because I was still going to do it here and there, but it was no longer going to be top of mind. I've been uninspired for quite some time for a variety of reasons. Most of it is because I'm an over-thinker. It's terrible. I can talk my ... VIEW POST

Women and finances

The following post is in collaboration with Wescom Credit Union. When the company I worked for downsized, I was left wondering what to do next. The obvious choice was to immediately get a job. After all, my son was a senior in high school and had plans to attend college, my medical bills were ... VIEW POST
