Editorial Director

As editorial director in Tiger Oak's Seattle office—and editor of award-winning Seattle magazine—Rachel oversees the editorial operations of the print and digital platforms of Seattle magazine, Seattle Bride, Oregon Bride, and California Wedding Day magazines, as well as Seattle Business, Seattle Luxury Living (a lifestyle magazine for Chinese newcomers) and Tiger Oak custom publications. Rachel's love of trends, food, arts, city living and pop culture—and all things locally produced—helps her capture the zeitgeist of Seattle in the pages of Tiger Oak's magazines, web sites and social media channels.

With more than 25 years of experience in city magazines, Rachel feels magazines and their related digital channels should tell the story of what's happening in a city right now, and curates each issue as if it's a cultural time capsule. Her team has recruited some of the city's top luminaries, writers and photographers to pen stories and capture imagery.

Before moving to Seattle in 1997, Rachel worked as features editor and associate publisher for eight years at Madison magazine in Madison, Wisconsin, where she won an Ozzie Award for a custom publication. Under her direction, the magazines in Seattle have received dozens of awards from the Society of Professional Journalists and media coverage around the sound. She holds a Bachelor of Science in journalism from the University of Wisconsin at Madison. She lives in Ballard with her husband and two teenage sons.
