Rachel, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer
Rachel founded Range Culture Co. with Angela to provide businesses and their employees a space to improve their communication, collaboration, and presentation skills using the techniques of improvisation and theatre.
Rachel’s experience with improv and comedy began when she was 15 and attended a summer comedy program at The Second City in Chicago. She continued her improv career at the University of Missouri, writing, performing, and leading workshops in the community. Rachel carried her love of performing to New York City and attended classes at the Upright Citizens Brigade theater, founded by Amy Poehler, Matt Besser, Ian Roberts, and Matt Walsh.
After moving to Maine in 2020 to be close to family, Rachel developed her professional career by supporting multiple executives in the Greater Portland area - this provided her insight on how important active listening, effective communication, and freedom of creative expression are to the success of a company’s executive team and culture.
Rachel lives in Westbrook with her boyfriend and dog Hank. Hank is not her boyfriend. That would be weird. You can find Rachel puttering around downtown Portland trying new restaurants, spending too much money at local bookstores, and griping about how much she misses her favorite Tex-Mex restaurant in her hometown of Dallas.
“No one looks stupid when they’re having fun.” - Amy Poehler
