A thought leader in the field, Rachel is a Master Executive Certified Matchmaker who teaches other entrepreneurs how to be successful matchmakers by creating courses, teaching certification programs, and speaking internationally at live events through The Matchmaking Institute.

Super-passionate about all things relationships, Rachel regularly appears in media and co-hosts events.

Rachel is pleased as punch to get up every day knowing that her work has resulted in many happy relationships, as well as sustainable marriages and the births of children.
