Hi, I'm Raquel! I create (and write) mindful, simple websites for big-hearted naturopaths, yoginis, and bright creatives like you.
My creative process values three things: meaningful branding, mindful design, and sincere communication.
(Also, kale smoothies. So maybe four things.)
Hm, what else? I have a toddler. I'm represented by New York literary agency, Writers House. I write for purpose-driven nonprofits, thought leaders, bright entrepreneurs, and sometimes Nobel Prize winners.
"My new website made me $22,361.97! Thank you Raquel!
"Before working with Raquel, I started from nothing. Her website strategies exploded my mailing list from zero to more than 2,000 subscribers in a week. What I love about Raquel is that she is real. She knows how to tap into the heart of your purpose and share it with others, with sincerity and passion."
- Fungai Ndemera, Business Strategist and Mentor
"NBC Today, The Atlantic, HuffPost Live, CBC News, The Wall Street Journal, Buzzfeed, LA Times, The New York Times...
We get top-tier media requests regularly, largely thanks to Raquel's vision for our website. Raquel knows how to create content that is impossible to ignore."
- Sierra Falter, Attorney and Advocate, www.weareeggdonors.com
When I was approached to write for Nobel Prize winner Desmond Tutu and Reverend Mpho Tutu, I was honored to adapt their beautiful book into interactive web content.
We created a free seven-day Forgiveness Challenge, based on their spiritual book, The Book of Forgiving: The Fourfold Path for Healing Ourselves and Our World.
The original 30-day launch of this Forgiveness Challenge resulted in 22,000 new subscribers; the new version echoed the quiet guidance and gorgeous wisdom of their book, and featured insights from original interviews with Deepak Chopra, Alanis Morrissette, and Dr. Fred Luskin at Stanford.
"I booked nine -- nine! -- brand new clients within just a few days of launching my website.
Before working with Raquel, I felt overwhelmed and pulled in all directions in my business - I didn't know ANYTHING about websites. I've launched my website and I'm booked solid for weeks! It's like the Universe conspired and said, alright, Jodi is working her tail off - it's time to reward her! Raquel is smart, creative and really gets me - who I am and why I'm passionate about my business. I'm so glad I chose to take my business to the next level. My investment paid off right away. I'm so grateful. Thank you, Raquel!"

"Raquel listened deeply to my needs, my voice, my message and my vision. I love, love, love her work. I love working with her. She is super creative, super smart, humble and gracious.
“Luck has a way a finding one who is looking for it. I was searching for the right copywriter for quite a while. How do you find the right person in a sea of "noise" and touted "expertise?" I was overwhelmed.
I needed a talented copywriter who could capture my voice and inspire my clients, who are well past their middle-age years. And then I happened upon Raquel at a cafe and my search was over... You too can get lucky.”
- Melanie DewBerry, TEDx Speaker and Author
"Raquel is really fun to work with. She's personable, professional and easy to talk to.
I needed a website for two years and for whatever reason, the people I hired kept falling through. I get frustrated really easily with techie stuff.
Raquel's teaching style takes this "Big Mysterious Overwhelming Website Thing" and funnels the process into something totally manageable and fun!
What I loved about the workshop is I didn't just get a professional website - I learned how to make changes whenever I want. I also loved connecting with other health practitioners in a fun and supportive space."
-- Melanie Kai, Massage Therapist, Yoga Instructor and Esthetician
"I'm not a techie person, and Raquel took away any trepidation I had about building a website. Her helpful and relaxed style alleviated all my fear about technology.
I've worked with web designers in the past, and it can be days or weeks to make a simple change. Thanks to her 'Finish Your Website In One Day' workshop, I feel confident making changes myself, so I don't have to hire someone to do it for me.
I loved the ease and simplicity of the instruction, and appreciated that I got so much one-on-one attention because it was a small group. I now have a beautiful, simple website that feels like me!"
