I’m Rachel.

I’m grateful you’re here. GIRL WARRIORS: How 25 Young Activists Are Saving the Earth, is due out on April 6, 2021 (Chicago Review Press). On the front lines, these climate activists around the world — who are all under age 25 — are fighting to reverse the damage we’ve done. 


Pull up a chair.

Let’s talk about how we can work together to create a new future. I became a reporter when I was 21 and moved to the Czech Republic to write for The Prague Post. My writing has appeared in The Washington Post, The New York Times, Yahoo, POPSUGAR, and more.


I’m listening.

My feature for The Washington Post about these teen activists hustling to save the planet is what inspired my forthcoming book, Girl Warriors.  I’m currently writing my next book for Chicago Review Press’ Women of Power series, about 15 contemporary women solving the climate crisis, due out in 2023.
