Rachel’s primary focus is on highly focused advocacy and problem solving. With nearly four decades of experience in resolving challenges for clients, Rachel’s first step in any project is an analysis of the client’s needs and concerns, and the development of a strategy for addressing them.
The complex regulatory environment applicable to the aviation and aerospace fields can be overwhelming and confusing for entities looking for solutions. The development of a strategy may be simple or complex, it may have a straight path or it may require an in-depth, multi-layered approach. The solution may be at the federal agency level, it may be operational, technical, transactional, contractual, legislative, or it may be a combination of approaches.
For example, an obstacle faced by a client may require something as simple as a discussion with agency regulators, or it may require the development of a multi-prong approach involving the development of detailed written submissions. Other challenges may require the intervention of congressional members or staff, or the submission of numerous rounds of in-depth advocacy-driven documentation. In some cases a solution may require the action of a like-minded coalition, or the drafting and negotiation of complex transaction documents.
Rachel’s initial focus is on determining how best to match the client’s needs, goals and resources to the most effective and efficient path to the desired result. After close operation with the client, Rachel presents clients with her proposed strategy and implementation plan, and works closely with clients throughout the process to ensure a highly informed and cooperative process. Rachel believes in a hands-on, personalized relationship with clients to serve their needs in a manner that best addresses their concerns and goals.
