Rachel Burns


A passionate promoter of good writing and small businesses, Rachel draws on her experiences growing up in a small, family-owned construction company when working with clients to help them craft compelling messages. 

After graduating from Old Dominion University's Undergraduate Creative Writing program and Graduate Professional Writing certificate program, she became the Executive Director of the nonprofit, Buy Fresh Buy Local Hampton Roads. There she worked with over a hundred small businesses including farms, retail operations, markets and restaurants, promoting the local food movement and helping small businesses reach their market. She quickly recognized a need in many small businesses and organizations for professional writing and content marketing services at an affordable price.

In 2014 she started The Content Chop Shop, and has been happily taking the burden of writing off of dozens of amazing business owners, design teams and organizations ever since.
