In October of 2019, Rachel came aboard the IndustrySafe team as a Business Systems Analyst.
Rachel had been part of our parent company, Vector Solutions, since January 2019. She shifted to the IndustrySafe team in order to help our team integrate IndustrySafe with other Vector brands, such as Convergence Training and Target Solutions.
To learn more about Rachel outside her time at Vector Solutions, read the brief Q&A session we had with her.
Where is your hometown?
Hard to say. I was born in Los Angeles and moved to Denver when I was 11. I left home when I was 14, went back to LA, and came to Tampa when I was 17. Then I moved back to Colorado for school when I was 18 and ended up in Baton Rouge from 2008 to 2015. Back in Tampa now this time for good!
What did you before working here? In Louisiana, I had my own accounting business and was the CFO of a non-profit. After moving back to Tampa in 2015, I got into the tech industry because I realized I hated accounting.
What do you like most about your job? I love that I work with a group of people and a subject matter that allows me to grow professionally and personally. What we do makes a real difference in peoples lives and I get to carry that with me when the clock hits 5.
What would people be surprised to know about you? When I was in college I considered a career in either bio-engineering or aerospace. I love science!
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not at work? The greatest moments of my life right now are when I can do absolutely nothing! With all the kids (5 total) and work, I rarely have any activities of my own choosing so I enjoy the little quiet moments with my husband lazing on the couch watching TV. Hopefully when the kiddos get bigger my list will expand!
