I've had the pleasure of working alongside Rachel as a colleague and managing her on my team at Comscore, and in both cases, she was always a strong team player that thinks outside the box. Her enthusiasm and passion for her work shines through in all that she does, and when teamed with her sense of commitment and follow-through, there’s is no stopping Rachel from achieving whatever goal is set in front of her. Rachel is a fierce client advocate, and there is no prospect she won’t call on. She is also a fabulous brand ambassador with great social media presence.

Rachel is such a talent...I've told many she is the only person I've ever seen receive a standing ovation from a client group after a presentation. Her enthusiasm, intelligence, sales acumen and boundless energy are wonderful assets. Rachel is heading great places and the employer who hitches on that wagon is very, very lucky.
Jenifer Starr, Media Operations Manager, Gregory Welteroth Advertising
Rachel brings contagious energy to work that makes you excited to be there! My interactions with her have always left me ready to take on whatever task was next on my list. I had the pleasure of working with Rachel directly through my agency relationship with comScore, where she was the Lead Account Manager. Not only did she provide my team and I with an incomparable level of customer service and knowledge of the product, but she also negotiated a fantastic deal to help me sell and onboard the product here at the agency.

Rachel is incredibly smart and has a knack for articulating complicated concepts to clients and prospects in a way that is clear and concise.
