Q & A:

If you won the lottery today, what kind of business would you start?
Assisted Living Home. There are too few caring places that are also affordable (and keep working with Ave25 of course!)
If money were no object, what would you order on Amazon today?
A Van Halen shirt. Wait, no. I just did a sort by price high to low. There's an ultra rare 1884 American Silver Morgan Dollar for $850,000. Amazon has a great return policy so I'd get that money back and invest it in a Vanguard total stock market ETF. I'm always looking for an angle.
What is one of your favorite healthy living tips that you practice?
Low carb, clean eating. I’ve been told that beer has only good carbs.
If you could invent a new holiday, what would it be about?
Just-be-kind-and-don’t-be-skeptical-of-those-being-kind-to-you day. Because not everyone is looking for an angle.

She is the first person our clients talk to and does a great job representing Avenue 25 and taking care of our clients from day one. Her background is in client services, sales and small business consulting with companies like NBC, so she really knows her stuff.

We discovered work has no time clock with Rachel as she’s known to text and email every one of us at all times of the day and night.
