About Rachael Baxter

Craving a platform where she could tell the inspiring stories of true agents of change, and in doing so elevate the conscious culture conversation, Rachael Baxter co-founded CONSCIOUS Magazine with her sister, Elena Baxter. As the magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, Rachael develops stories featuring social entrepreneurs, community development, local to global initiatives, and more, and is constantly striving to capture the zeitgeist of the ever-evolving conscious culture movement. Her involvement has also provided the opportunity to interview leaders from around the world to mentoring young leaders like when she spoke on Social Good at Harvard’s Igniting Innovation Summit, and on Leadership and Innovation at the UN International Youth Leaders Assembly. Watching Conscious Magazine grow from a vision into a global destination for curated conscious culture has been what she calls “both a thrilling and fulfilling experience.” Ultimately, Rachael is on a mission to work alongside the next generation of storytellers and journalists who seek to change the world through media.
