Hi I’m Rachel Tamilio!
Since building trust is where every great relationship begins, it’s only fair you know a little about me because as a client, I’ll need to know some about you and your life!
So here goes. I am a creative professional. I love the great outdoors, taking beautiful pictures, assembling video, time with loved ones and helping people. I am from the Boston area and have spent most of my time here.
I was 30 years old when I was diagnosed with an aggressive case of hodgkins lymphoma. The nasty mass had made a home in my mediastinum and wrapped itself around my windpipe.
By the grace and mercy of God, brilliant doctors and unwavering support of loved ones, I survived 6 months of hellacious chemo and 20 days of radiation. Doctors really didn’t think I was going to make it. God had other ideas.
Partly due to that crisis, after I started to recover, I decided I didn’t want to go back to the corporate world and began exploring other avenues for career that were more fulfilling.
Always having had a passion for stories, helping/empowering people, I found a home in relational selling. Just after I discovered this to be a more fulfilling path, another crisis hit and priorities shifted.
My Mom was very ill and overnight I became a caregiver to her until she breathed her last in 2016. It was a gift to me and I have zero regret about putting life on hold to some degree, to take care of her.
Experience is the best teacher, but it’s also the toughest. I can have empathy and
compassion for people that are starting over or reinventing themselves, because I know
exactly how tough that can be. I also know how rewarding it can be.Poppins

You cannot achieve what you have not defined.” — John C. Maxwell
In 2019, to take the “helping people” to a new level, I decided to get my certification as a Life Coach.
While the certification may be newer, the fact is that mentoring, coaching, consulting and teaching are things I’ve done for most of my life in one form or another.
Experience is the best teacher, but it’s also the toughest. I can have empathy and compassion for people that are starting over or reinventing themselves, because I know exactly how tough that can be. I also know how rewarding it can be. So now you know a little about me.
How about you tell me about you? Whether in life or business or both, Life Coaching or Marketing, let’s talk and see how I can best help you. I look forward to “meeting” you!
I believe that each one of us was loving created and designed by God. As a creationist, I believe we were made in his likeness. That being said, each one of us inherently creative. Maybe your expression of creativity isn’t knitting or painting. That’s ok. Creativity is much deeper and far reaching than visual arts. “Creative by Design” isn’t about my company. It’s about all of us. We are creative. By design. (The RT is there because without it, that is the name of a kitchen renovation company!)
