Staff Spotlight: Rachel Felice
Describe your role at Vanguard
As a senior communications manager, my daily scope of work includes a great deal of writing. From press releases and advisories to mass emails and social media copy, I spend most of my day creating written content for our clients.
What do you like most about working at Vanguard?
Other than the people, of course, I absolutely love our flex day perk. I live in metro Detroit, so it's great to save gas money one day a week and work from the comfort of my home. It's also nice knowing senior management trusts junior staff to get the work done without breathing down our necks all day, every day.
What spawned your interest in politics?
Let's take it back to November 2016. I'm watching the election results come in live and it's not pretty. What's worse? I'm the only person in the room who bothered to get out and vote. Sitting there, listening to all of my friends complain about the outcome, really drove it home for me. I decided enough was enough – I had to take action. Working to get Democratic candidates elected is my way of doing just that.
What is your favorite smartphone app?
It's so hard to choose just one! I love the traditional social media apps, but I think my favorite app is Imgur. I'd say it's similar to Reddit, but fewer words and more pictures.
