Talk Time with Rachel

MRI serves over 800 children and adults with disabilities each year. That’s a lot of people! But, what do you actually know about our clients here at MRI?

Every person who walks through the doors of MRI is unique, from employees to clients to parents and caregivers. We want to introduce you to the many faces of MRI, one person at a time. With the help of our up-and-coming journalist, Rachel, MRI will be bringing you new stories each week.

Rachel already interviews people around the building for our monthly newsletter, the Real Source. She writes her own questions and turns the answers into articles. When we decided we wanted to start a MRI blog, Rachel was our first thought. She is excited to see her stories online and share her interviewing skills, but first you ought to get to know the reporter herself!

Meet Rachel

Talk Time with Rachel is always fan favorite in the Real Source. Our clients and employees love seeing themselves in print! Rachel has been interviewing people at MRI for a few years now. She reluctantly started Talk Time with Rachel as a way to start conversations with others at MRI and to get to know them. Two MRI case managers encouraged the segment so she could overcome some of her shyness. While Rachel admits she is still shy and hesitant to start conversation, she enjoys getting to know new friends and learning about their likes and dislikes. Below, Rachel answers a few of her own classic interview questions.

Rachel enjoys drawing and prefers to focus on portraits of famous artists. Her favorite places to eat are Fuji and Panda Express. Rachel’s favorite animal is a cat. She loves how cats can be playful and full of purrs, but then in the next breath, they can be huge jerks. Rachel’s best friend is her case manager Amber. She admires how Amber will do anything for anyone. She is always nice, sweet and helpful.

Rachel loves pop music like Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez and Christina Aguilera and Lifetime movies. Whenever she cooks dinner at home, she loves to make scrambled eggs. Rachel loves coming to MRI because she enjoys learning new skills and having a place to pursue them.

Rachel is just one of the over 800 clients and almost 300 employees at MRI. Stay tuned she introduces someone new each week!
