“I look in the mirror and I see a storyteller trying to make a living,” says Rachel Lehmann-Haupt, founder and editor-in-chief of StoryMade, a boutique storytelling studio, when asked if she sees herself as a journalist, an editor, a ghostwriter, or a content strategist. As the author of In Her Own Sweet Time: Egg Freezing and the New Frontiers of Family, Rachel established herself as a leading voice on the future of family life and women’s health issues. She has written for The New York Times, New York, O Magazine, Self, Wired, and Vogue, and she was recently honored with an award for excellence in feature writing by the Association of Healthcare Journalists for an article she wrote for Neo.Life entitled “Portrait of a Professional Babymaker.”
Rachel joins us on the podcast to discuss her life and career, including note and comment on what it was like to grow up in a house surrounded by books (her father was the senior daily book review editor at The New York Times for over twenty-five years; her paternal grandfather was a noted bibliographer and the curator of rare books at Columbia University), but mostly to shine a light on her work helping individuals and organizations tell stories of their lives and initiatives in compelling new ways.
