Rachel joined Lessiter as the Digital Media Intern in January of 2017. Since becoming a full-time Digital Content Specialist in the Digital Media Department in February of 2018, she took on social media posting, daily and weekly e-newsletter creation, analytics and data collection and digital content production. She has a background in audio storytelling and has helped with editing various podcasts produced by Lessiter Media. When Rachel isn’t in the office, she enjoys running, reading, thrifting and spending time with her husband, friends and family.
A fun fact about Rachel is that her family owns and manages several farms in central Illinois. This land was homesteaded and still contains areas of unplowed soil! Someday, Rachel will be the Farm Manager of this land.
