“As a pediatrician and health communicator, I have had the opportunity to speak with and be interviewed by many, many journalists and writers. It is all too common for some to come to me with little to no knowledge of their subject and then expect me to do my best to fill them in (sometimes at inappropriately great length) on whatever child/family-relevant topic they’re writing about. And then there are the well-respected writers/journalists like Rachel, who make it a pleasure. I have had the opportunity to work with Rachel on many a parenting topic, and have always found her to have a solid understanding of and appreciation for the topics she and I have discussed together. She is interested, interesting, and always well-prepared to both make the best use of my time and her own to cover a topic thoroughly, realistically, and understandably for her readers.”
—Laura Jana, M.D., spokesperson for the American Academy of Pediatrics, co-author of Heading Home with Your Newborn and Food Fights, and founder of Practical Parenting Consulting.
“We have been fortunate enough to work with Rachel many times over the years. She has a gift for taking complicated nutrition concepts and making them easy to understand—relaying the most pertinent information in an accurate yet entertaining and engaging manner. She is such a pleasure to work with and she always quotes us accurately. You can count on her to create an informative read, packed with fantastic information. We are always honored to be interviewed for one of her stories. She’s fabulous!”
—Lyssie Lakatos and Tammy Lakatos Shames, (aka The Nutrition Twins), registered dieticians, certified personal trainers, and authors of The Secret to Skinny and Fire Up Your Metabolism
“I highly recommend Rachel. She’s interested in creating great content for smart, savvy readers, beyond the usual run-of-the-mill stuff. She is friendly, organized, and pleasant to work with. Always professional, she is responsive, helpful, and knowledgeable in a wide area of subjects. I’m a parenting expert and psychologist, and she’s always quoted me accurately. I’ve enjoyed collaborating with her over the past couple of years and look forward to more interesting projects together in the future!”
