After silently suffering from Anxiety Disorder and Depression for over a year, Rachel made the decision to resign from a lucrative and promising corporate career to travel the world indefinitely.
Rachel's love for travel started before ever stepping on a plane. As a child, she read hundreds of books which allowed her to explore the world, in different times and places over and over again. In high school, she was granted an opportunity to travel to China for a month. Since then, her heart for travel and exploration has taken her to over 40 countries.
She created a travel platform to educate, inspire, and influence Millennials of color to travel the world to push past their comfort zones, travel the world (like a boss on a budget), and change the narrative on what it means to be a traveler of color.
Before leaving Corporate America, she was a Digital Marketing Project Manager, developing mobile apps, social media games, and creating digital strategies.
Rachel Travels has been featured in Matador Network, Essence Online, XONecole, Blavity, and Black and Abroad.
