Artful Leadership Coaching & Consulting
Call to Inquire
Rachelle Archer, expressive arts practitioner turned educational consultant, is the founder of Artful Leadership Coaching & Consulting. She’s on a mission to help leaders prioritize their own wellbing, so that they can lead with a full tank and transform their learning communities into safe, inclusive, healing spaces where students and staff thrive.
She has worked for over 25 years at the intersection of arts, education, and healing, primarily in the field of creative youth development. As a founding member of The Monarch School San Diego, she served youth impacted by homelessness in a unique public-private setting for over two decades. She helped develop a nationally recognized model for educating unhoused youth, specializing in arts based approaches to community building, mental health, SEL, and leadership development for students and staff. Her belief in the transformative power of the arts imbues everything she does with creative expression, experiential learning, and play. Rachelle’s work is deeply rooted in her values: everyone can be a leader, humans thrive in community, and the wellbeing of that community starts with us doing our inner work first.
Rachelle lives in San Diego, California, where she can often be found having spontaneous dance parties in her kitchen or getting schooled on baseball trivia by her giant son, Kai.
