Rachel, our Director of Programs, works on Fellow support, engagement, mentorship, and training for Fellows, founders, and alums. Prior to joining VFA, Rachel received her bachelor’s degree in advertising from the S.I. Newhouse School at Syracuse University and went on to work at Starcom MediaVest Group, as well as a few boutique marketing firms, for several years. In 2012, Rachel also launched an online community for young professional women called Quarterlette.com (it was even recognized by Forbes Magazine as a top 10 website for millennial women!). While Rachel enjoyed working with her past clients on their marketing campaigns, it was her experience building and growing Quarterlette.com that made her eager to support other aspiring entrepreneurs. Rachel is also a Philly native and recently returned to her hometown to become the first VFA team member living in the City of Brotherly Love.
