Senior Marketing Strategist
Our very own Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm. And she can draw too!
Rachel came to field of professional design the long way round, not discovering her passion and skill set for the visual arts until she’d already completed her degree in English (a B.A. from Linfield College). She then continued her education and earned another degree in Graphic Design (an A.A. in Graphic Design from the Art Institute of Portland). As a result, it surprised no one that her approach to design comes from a place of language and message. As a member of the FP Transitions’ marketing team she combines her love of words and image with copywriting and design.
For many of FP Transitions’ advisor clients, the concepts of equity management, continuity planning, and succession planning can seem to be complicated or unclear. Rachel’s unenviable task is to succeed in capturing those concepts on a single web page, in a 2 page brochure, or in a 10 minute video – and she does it well, every day.
Originally from Reno, Nevada, Rachel left the desert over a decade ago for the rainy lushness of Oregon and never went back. On a typical rainy Oregon weekend you’re likely to find Rachel curled up with a good book and mug of local coffee…or glass of fine Willamette Valley Pinot Noir.

Alex joined FP Transitions in 2014 to support the marketing team’s goal of putting personality into financial analysis and succession planning. When your business’s backbone is crunching data, adding some life is no simple task! Alex prepared for the job by completing a degree in Design Management and further honed his skills by developing brand strategies for alternative businesses in the Portland area. Alex brings a creative edge to FP Transitions’ new video production efforts.
Originally an Oregon State Beaver, Alex also helps maintain the balance in the office between Beavers and Ducks, and proudly sports the orange and black. Although he was born in San Diego, Alex has embraced life as a Portlander—his appreciation for slapstick and urban farming are apparent in his pet chicken, named Steve Butabi.
Unpredictable and untamable, some of his most entertaining material may be cut from the final product, but rest assured we keep the outtakes safe in the FP Transitions Vault.

She channels her enthusiasm for history and textile arts into historical reenactment with the Society for Creative Anachronism, a group that focuses on recreating the middle ages. Miriam has traveled widely for her studies and even claims to have found a mummy in Peru. Prior to joining FP Transitions, Miriam worked as an analyst with the University of Oregon in their fundraising department, coordinating reporting, portfolio management and proposal tracking.
Miriam is excited to bring her analytical background to FP Transitions to streamline the current sales pipeline process and help implement systems to improve communication and service to customers.
Having recently relocated to the Portland area and into a new house, Miriam is excited to explore the Portland food and art scene. She hopes one day to have a working kitchen (the house is currently in an ever evolving state of remodel) and worries which wall may disappear next time she leaves for the weekend.
