Rachel Burgard

Attendee Liaison | Relationship Strategist

Born and raised in a small town in Southern New Hampshire, Rachel recently relocated to Portland, ME and is loving it! She is a graduate of Plymouth State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a minor in Art. Prior to arriving at Strategic HR U.S. she worked several unusual jobs, the most recent being a traveling caricature artist.

One of Rachel’s passions (or obsessions) is the idea of self-love/self-care, and over the years has become an advocate for such on social media as well as in her social circles. Her dream is to one day implement or support a program that travels to elementary, middle, and high schools speaking with young girls about body image and self-esteem.

Deemed a “social butterfly” by her third grade teacher, Rachel is seldom shy or without a smile. She loves meeting and getting to know new people and can be found dancing the night away in downtown Portland on the weekends. Those close to Rachel describe her as creative, funny, warm, friendly, and generous.

Though she is relatively new to the realm of HR and Event Planning, she has already fallen in love with the industry and her colleagues!
