Rachel Nicolosi

Partner and Communications Coordinator

In brief

Rachel has worked for over 20 years in the field of adult education, adult literacy, and workforce development.  She works with organizations doing good in the world to design and facilitate projects that incorporate what we know about how adults learn for deep, personal learning that lasts.

Rachel became a plain language advocate during the recovery from the man made disaster following Hurricane Katrina.  She reviews and edits communication materials, trains staff on how to write using plain language concepts, and conducts plain language field tests with potential audiences.

She is from New Orleans, and recently moved to Bend, Oregon with her husband and two children. She stays energized through involvement in her children’s school, her community, her carnival krewe, and spending time outdoors.
