Rachel Simrell Scott – Director of Marketing at Board & Vellum

Rachel Simrell Scott

Director of Marketing

Living in, and loving Seattle since the age of two, Rachel is a Pacific Northwesterner through-and-through. Long fascinated by art and design, Rachel earned a Bachelor of Arts in Art History & Visual Culture Studies at Whitman College, where she explored the relationship between the visual world and current events. While at Whitman, Rachel had the opportunity to spend a semester abroad in Florence, Italy, studying Italian film, contemporary art, and taking studio classes in black & white photography. It was there that she decided to pursue architecture.

The summer following graduation, Rachel enrolled in an architecture studio at the University of Washington, then promptly secured an internship working in the field for two years. Graduate studies followed, culminating in a Master of Architecture from the University of Oregon.

Following school, Rachel co-founded Emerald Seven, an integrative design studio, where she and her husband, Blake, design & develop in both the physical and digital realms. Before joining the B&V team in September of 2015, Rachel’s first solo full-house residential remodel and addition transformed a bare-bones ’50s era house into a home full of light and natural materials. She now harnesses her experience in the digital, graphics, and content marketing realm to transform our visual output and marketing practices at B&V.

When she steps away from the studio, you’ll find Rachel eating and drinking her way through Seattle’s neighborhoods, seeking lucky finds in her favorite thrift stores, and playing home chef with Blake.
