CEO & Founder
Meet Rachel and her writing experience!
Making a Way Writing Services was born out of my love for bringing words to life and was founded on my previous experiences and education.
I am not just another journalist or English major but have real-world know-how and experience behind me. I began my career looking to climb the corporate ladder, working for several multinational companies in operations. However, long hours, stress, and travel kept me from my then young children and husband. This was not the way I had imagined my work-life would be, without balance and lacking in purpose.
Until the day came when I could no longer keep up the pace and my husband suggested a change in direction. After navigating a medical condition with him, I dipped my toe into the ocean of writing, instantly became eager to dive in, and wrote my first biography about his experiences. I was hooked! I discovered that I was a good writer and had a way of telling other people’s stories. I soon learned that EVERYONE has a story, no matter the circumstances or outcome and that their story was worth sharing.
I no longer desired to pursue the corporate path and needed to make a change. I decided to find what I call a J.O.B. that would afford me the ability to spend more time with my family and the flexibility to dabble with other interests like writing. Working for a small, family-owned business not only gave me the flexibility I sought but also taught me about the precarious world of small business and entrepreneurship.
Fast forward eight years, and the world is shaken to its core by the COVID-19 pandemic. I found myself unemployed yet thrilled to be given the push that I needed to make yet another life transition – to that of a business owner, entrepreneur, and full-time writer.
Making a Way Writing Services was born out of my love for bringing words to life and was founded on my previous experiences and education. I have enjoyed the opportunity to work with countless authors, clients, business owners, and everyday people, helping them to bring their books, articles, and biographies to fruition. Whether I am editing a manuscript, documenting their life story, or writing a self-help book, I know that I am making a difference. Not everyone has the same gifts and talents, and I consider myself very blessed to use mine to help others put their words on paper.
Who is your favorite author and/or book?
As an avid reader, I don’t necessarily have a favorite author or book. I do, however, love psychological thrillers and historical fiction.
What are your favorite topics to write about?
As a ghostwriter, I frequently have the opportunity to conduct interviews and write biographies. I consider myself the pen that documents a person’s life story. I love to learn about people and feel honored to facilitate the sharing of their stories with the world.
Tell me a fun fact about yourself.
I lived in Spain for part of my junior year in college. Sí, yo hablo Español!
Also, when I am driving around town, you are certain to see my dog in the passenger seat next to me.
What do you like to do in your free time?
Not only am I a business owner, writer, and editor, but I am the proud mom of two teens. In my free time, you will probably hear me on the football/soccer field or on the basketball court, cheering them on loudly. During football season, you will most likely find me serving drinks and candy to hungry football fans out of the snack shack!
Since I live in beautiful Connecticut, with its many lakes and ponds, I enjoy a nice evening on the paddle board with friends (when the weather permits, of course). I also enjoy walking with my dog and spending time with my husband of more than 20 years.
