Hey hey!

I’m Rachael Crowe. Yeah, like Russel and Sheryl. I’m a social media strategist and community developer who loves marketing, coffee, my cat Fluffy, high-waisted jeans, and punk indie bands.

Looking for my photography work? That’s moved here now.

I’ll post the links to my social media, but fair warning, I’m a compulsive over-sharer on Instagram Stories, have a terrible sense of humor on Twitter, and only post mom-approved content on Facebook. Happy stalking!
