“And though she be but little, she is fierce.” -Shakespeare

For Rachel, the line between work and life is often blurred, but she wouldn’t have it any other way. She believes that passion drives productivity, and she operates by that philosophy.

A talented writer and relentless multi-tasker, Rachel is uber-organized, detail-oriented, obsessed with social media, and forever in tune with the latest trends in marketing and PR. She manages the brands and online personalities of her clients as meticulously as she does her seriously organized wardrobe at home.

In those rare times when she’s not busy with work or blogging, Rachel likes to unwind by hitting summer patios and rooftops for happy hour, taking in the beautiful lakes around Uptown, and spending time with her beloved friends and family. Especially her hilarious stud muffin of a boyfriend.






Alyssa is a movie-loving, book-reading, obsessively driven girl, and has been most of her life. Her love of adventure and books lead to writing a novel, and she hasn’t stopped writing since. She thoroughly enjoys creating and sharing experiences with others, which is why she’s thrilled to be co-writing The Dating Chronicles.

By day, Alyssa works in the banking world, putting the communications and PR/marketing skills she learned in college to good use. The rest of her time is spent writing, over-indulging in movies and over-analyzing their cinematic appeal, planning her next travel adventure (she promised herself after studying abroad that she’d visit one new place per year and has done so since 2010) and spending time with her lovably chill boyfriend.

 Alyssa couldn’t agree more. She loves talking to people and hearing their stories. Feel free to reach her on Facebook and Twitter, she’d love to hear from you!
