Sura is a creative problem solver & design thinking provocateur. Since 2002, she has facilitated human-centered innovation solutions through a variety of lenses – at Disney, with Fortune 500 challenger innovation brand consultancies and as an entrepreneur.
While playing an integral part of the in house innovation team at Disney, she answered compelling questions such as the ten year future for lines of business, national communication strategy, blue sky thinking and reimagining a 25 year old sales and marketing process.
She also was an entrepreneur within a tech start-up focused on car dealers in San Francisco in addition to a two person luxury jewelry startup that acquired distribution at Neiman Marcus.
She now blends this entrepreneurial drive-your-own-bus spirit with navigating big organization dynamics, and partners with like-minded collaborators.
In her spare time, Sura is obsessed with experiencing different cultures, having moved 11 times by the time she was 11, spending as much time as possible in the water, or practicing hip hop yoga, as well as cooking and hosting friends she calls family.

Rachel is a Creative Strategist - which means she does a little bit of everything when it comes to building ideas, connecting the right people and re-inventing creative approaches. She believe there's always room for collaboration and developing new opportunities for brands and individuals.
Rachel spent several years working as a strategist on the branded content side of a digital studio before jumping over to a full-service ad agency. She quickly realized that she had a tough time falling in line with more traditional, departmentalized approaches to content and ideas. After a lot of internal back and forth, she took a leap. Rachel can proudly say that she quit her job in advertising to pursue creative strategy opportunities full time - and serendipitously enough - found WeOverMe.
Rachel proudly hails from Delaware, representing Syracuse University as much as possible, and often finds herself petting dogs that don't belong to her.
