Every Friday, you’ll either meet one of our team or one of our clients on the fourth floor.
After earning a Bachelor of Arts in English and working her first job in Montreal’s ‘shmata’ district, Rachelle went south of the border to pursue her big city dreams in New York City. She attended the Fashion Institute of Technology, and then scored some major PR experience with Bloomingdale’s and Stuart Weitzman. Rachelle returned home and landed a gig as PR manager for La Senza, and then managed such brands as Le Château and Liz Claiborne at a Montreal-based PR agency. Now she’s not only a PR-powerhouse, but also a savvy new mom who still loves social trends, pop culture and chocolate.
How long have you been part of the team?
I have been part of the team for two years, which I have to say have flown by. Being from Montreal originally, it’s been a great way to get to know the people, places and things in Toronto.
How do you like to relax?
Reading the New York Times (Sunday Styles) accompanied by a Montreal bagel and schmear.
Last song played on your iPod?
Smile by Michael Jackson.
What is your guilty pleasure?
Drinking Tim Horton’s coffee in bed while watching The Dog Whisperer.
Best part about being a publicist?
Never a dull moment.
