Commas & Commerce
Armed with her modern pen and paper (computer), Rachel Lurya works as a professional copywriter and content manager who weaves sentences into powerful, handcrafted messages designed to grow brands and boost sales. Before starting Commas & Commerce, she worked as an in-house copywriter for a successful tech startup and as an independent e-commerce writer.
A creative to the core, Rachel’s repertoire ranges from writing for social media for public figures to ghostwriting and beyond. Current clients are featured in OC Business Journal, Harvard Business Review, Young, Self-Employed, and Entrepreneurial, OC Weekly and even podcasts.
As a mother of two, Rachel felt the office life was like living in a fishbowl, and not a fit for her busy family life. So, she gave the corporate life the peace sign and set out to find world-class clients to write for. Her mission is to inspire other people to find what they’re good at and build a career from there. Needless to say, she’s enjoying her swim in the shark tank for now.
Rachel is also a proud UC Berkeley Alum and Regents’ Scholar (go Bears!), where each weekend she rode the snow-capped Sierras on the CAL Snowboard Team. When she’s not strategizing with rebel entrepreneurs and major media groups, Rachel spends her time planning camping and snowboarding escapades with her husband and two kids, inventing new puns, advocating girl power, endorsing the Oxford comma, reading, and cooking (often at the same time).
