Rachel is the VP of Product at Bestest, an early stage startup focused on socializing the polling process. When she's not engaging in the standard founder hustle, and bridging communication gaps between management and engineering, she is designing and iterating on the UX/UI of the app itself. She is passionate about holistic product management, placing emphasis on the value of well-roundedness and heightened communication skills to be the most effective PM possible.
In her limited free time, Rachel enjoys travel, yoga, and web development (#sidehustle). She is also an active member of Tech Ladies (founding member), and in addition to her work at Startup Institute, has volunteered with organizations such as Girl Develop It, Women in Tech, and League of Women Coders.
