Rachel Rodi has been a wonderful mentor and I have had the privilege of working on her projects over the years. She once said to me “Your work is my work.”  It is immensely gratifying when you hear that from a mentor.  A right of passage.  Here are pics of some of Rachel’s projects I’ve helped with.
