FIND OUT MORE ABOUT ME...
I have a background in Journalism. My writing includes articles on social issues from Alzheimers, community topics, profiles on companies, travel pieces, film/book reviews, press releases and more. I have my first book out soon containing interviews with a variety of people in business, community, and the arts who I interviewed during the pandemic. I am also writing a children's book.
Previous work experience was for the Dun Laoghaire Gazette and also a work placement for Futura Communications working on their trade publications Menswear and Footwear in Ireland. I have also had articles published in the Irish Independent, U Mag, Ireland's Own and online.
I have written articles for Women in Business Alliance (WIBA) through Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Chamber(DLR) on women in business issues and women in politics.
I achieved a Post Grad in Learning and Teaching for Further Education/Adult Education in 2019 which boosted my career choice and gave me another avenue to explore in teaching. I was teaching a weekly Creative Writing class in my local community pre- pandemic and brought my writing course online to help people stay well, mentally, through writing about how they were feeling about the pandemic, etc.
I am a firm believer as a parent that we can teach our children to think outside the box creatively by expressing themselves through writing, drawing, painting and telling stories vocally or in a creative format. My eight-year-old son was recently awarded a certificate for winning a competition for his class in association with Blackrock Education Center and their "Write a Book" project collaboration with local schools. I hope I have been instrumental in his creative abilities from watching me through my work, in particular, working from home during the pandemic.
For my own creativity, I love to swim in the sea and continue to do it in the winter months, as long as my hands don't get frostbite 🙂 My happy place is by the sea, watching the sunrise with my children.

It was an absolute pleasure to be interviewed by Yvonne Reddin for her Talk Learn Connect series of articles. She is an amazingly warm and approachable journalist who's middle name is professionalism. Every detail is attended to and she checks every fact making it her business to profile her guests as their real authentic selves. I feel so delighted to have met her and I'm even more delighted to have been included in her work. I wish her well in all future endeavours. Thank you Yvonne. Warmly, Rachel Gotto

Preparing to present at a conference, I wanted my PowerPoint presentation to be impactful with images that participants would be likely to remember. Yvonne took time to understand the essence of the message and devised a presentation that I am very happy to roll out again and again. Thanks Yvonne.
