JOL Team: Meet Rachel!

At Janelle on Location, our Team dynamics are wonderfully unique and we wanted to take some time to introduce you to each member. First up:  Rachel!

I was so excited to meet Rachel that fateful day in 2014. She'd been recommended for me to consider as a new addition to the Team, and it was evident immediately that she has a God-given eye for enhancing natural beauty. Her eagerness to always learn and grow as a Stylist (which is a requirement for the JOL Team!) was extremely evident, as well as an unbelievably hard work ethic and tremendous dependability.

This past year, Rachel received certification from the Devachan Salon in NYC and is now "Deva Certified!" We are so proud that she's specializing in Naturally Curly hair.

Emails from Rachel are full of exclamation points as her genuine enthusiasm can't be stifled. She is kind, up-beat, steady as a rock under stress, and has a beautiful servant's heart. "Whatever she needs!" is the most frequent response I receive from Rachel as we orchestrate the details of Trial Run and Wedding Day schedules with each #jolbride that is "hers." 

Just recently, I received this sweet email after our #jolbride Nicole and her mom had their Hair Trial Runs with Rachel,

"I cannot thank you both enough.  We just got back from dinner and were both talking about how much we love our hair.  Rachel was amazing.  I really wasn't sure how to explain what I liked (I'm not sure if I even knew to be honest) but she was so patient with me and wonderful to work with.  It made me so excited for what's to come and to have her as part of our big day." 

Rachel loves sushi, 7 Brides for 7 Brothers, plays the harp, sings, and is number 8 of 10 kids (yes, you read that right: TEN!). She looks forward to picnics with her husband and her annual family vacation to Maine with no electricity or indoor plumbing!

We are so thankful to have Rachel as part of the #jolteam !
