storytelling &
problem solving
with soul.




Blogs, articles, & portfolio writeups, mainly in fintech & design spaces. Injecting words with humour and soul is what I do.


I loathe typos and love oxford commas. Whether you have a bare-bones concept that needs fleshing out or a finished draft that needs polishing, I can help.

The Quirky

“Rats in the organ” historical transcription. Ghostwriting a submission report for the Regional Business Awards. SOP documentation for client gifts at Christmas time.
If you’ve got something outside the box, I want in.


Full Setup

Don’t know where to start? Want to save yourself time and frustration? I offer a full-service account setup from importing past financial records, to setting up categories, to implementing auto-categorisation rules and more.


Help with structuring your budgets. A comprehensive overhaul of your dashboards. Written documentation with visuals to walk you through a sticky question. Whatever the issue, I’m here to help.

Please note I am not currently open to new PocketSmith clients.
I can highly recommend my fellow advisors Ellen Walsh and Ruth Henderson.


Rachel has an incredible ability to write about complex topics in an engaging, humorous and soulful way. No small feat when it comes to things like money management and budgeting – we love her work!

I couldn’t be happier with Rachel’s work on my PocketSmith setup and ongoing maintenance. She is efficient and discreet, communicates clearly, takes the initiative, and has saved me dozens of hours by alerting me to potential issues before they could get out of control.
Brilliant work.

Having used Rachel’s transcription services for over six years, her work is consistent, with good communication as to timeframes (and her amusing side-notes brighten the long evenings of research.)
