RACHEL LINCOLN SARNOFF
CONNECTING CAUSE WITH STORY TO AMPLIFY IMPACT
In her spare time, Rachel is a creative writer who volunteers as a senior editor at the Northwest Review and a reader at Moss. As a storyteller, she has performed at "Expressing Motherhood" and KPCC "UnheardLA" events.
Rachel's experiences as an environmental activist inform her writing; she is fascinated by how the past shadows the present and hopes to help readers imagine a different future: less dystopia, more hope.
As a mentor, Rachel connects with students through NYU, UCSB and 826LA.
Rachel Lincoln Sarnoff delivers social and environmental impact strategies for systems change through strategic leadership, communications and marketing, fundraising, and stakeholder engagement.
A thought leader who understands intuitively how to connect storytelling with cause to amplify impact, Rachel holds a master's degree in journalism from USC. She appeared on the “Today Show,” gave her latest TEDx talk in 2019, and recently published in the Washington Post.
Rachel was executive director of the nonprofits Healthy Child Healthy World and the 5 Gyres Institute and has blogged as Mommy Greenest since 2008. She teaches marketing and communications through the Environmental Leadership Incubator at UCSB, her alma mater.
"You can't make people feel like you're lecturing to them. You can have the most important cause in the world, but even if it is, you have to know how to tell the story."
Rachel brings a wide-ranging skill set from marketing to PR to sustainability, all balanced with a passion to drive her clients to be better for their customers...Working with Rachel was extremely educational for me and our company, and customers are better off because of Rachel's knowledge and input."
Rachel Sarnoff is changing our world! Her passionate and inspiring work: to educate and advocate for our children, our health and our environment -- is contagious...I feel honored and blessed to have worked with her and deeply admire her strong work ethic, integrity and voracious intelligence.

Rachel has been instrumental in making the case for our technology and evolving the narrative...Not many people can pull off that type of shift and we could not have done that without Rachel's integrity, brilliance, credibility and tenacity.
