Hello + Welcome West Valley Moms!
Rachel is a desert gal through and through but does enjoy escaping to the beaches of sunny California where she was born. Rachel started her bloggy career with a personal family blog called Harding Happenings. She wanted her extended family to feel connected to her little growing family regardless of the distance between them. With members living in Colorado, California and Canada this was a way to unobtrusively share stories, milestones and more. Rachel found that her love for crafts, DIY projects, and recipes found their way to her family blog. In 2013 she had the opportunity to join West Valley Moms Blog and shortly after was promoted to the role of Co-Founder. Since then she has truly enjoyed the sense of community and connection discovered within the City Moms Blog Network. Rachel offers 9 years of experience in the fields of Business Development, Marketing and Graphic Design. She has an Associate of Arts from GCC and continued education at ASU West.
