Hi, I’m Rachel.

I’m grateful you’re here. My next book, GIRL WARRIORS: How 25 Young Activists Are Saving the Earth , is due out in April 2021 (Chicago Review Press).

In this book, 25 climate activists under age 25 share their stories about tackling the biggest challenge humanity has ever faced.


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. I’ve written for The Washington Post, The New York Times, Salon, Ravishly, BabyCenter, Yahoo, and more.


I’m listening.

I write because the climate crisis is killing people all over the world. My feature for The Washington Post about these teen activists hustling to save the planet is what inspired my current book.

Also, solo moms are my heroes. I was one for a decade.
