Hi, I’m Rachel. Recovering Corporate is a space I created after leaving my 12-year career at a Fortune 50 organization to pursue part-time work and spend more time with my young family. Here’s the post that got this party started.

I’m a west-coaster, born and raised in northern California, now raising my toddler girls with Jim, my college-crush-turned-husband, in northern Nevada.

Like the blog title, my initials are also RC. Since acronyms and corporate jargon are synonymous, I couldn’t help myself. And if I’m being honest, I love anything monogrammed. I also love a good pun, wearing flats again (bye black pumps!), snail mail from friends, and my close friends who have the unique talent of making me cry-laugh.

When I’m not at home, I hope to be somewhere outside and am likely enjoying a scone and cappuccino on a patio, chasing my rowdy girls, and enjoying the sunshine.

Here you will find solidarity in working motherhood and stories about my life beyond the 9-5.


If this is your first time visiting, high five and thanks. Here are a few posts to get you started:

  1. Just saw your “Before/after | Closing out our front room (Part 2)” as I was looking for Salty Dog inspirations. I love your wall color and it really makes those french doors pop. Would be willing to share your wall color? Thanks, Joy :o)


    1. Hi Joy! Thanks for the sweet note. We’re really happy with how the Salty Dog turned out. Our wall color is Sherwin Williams Worldly Grey. I’d love to see your project when you’re done. Link back to it if you can!
