What makes Randi tick?

I love my work. I spend my days (and nights!) using biz-savvy creative problem solving DNA to help clients “make the right stuff to achieve incredible results!” I help engaged, focused clients experiment in QuaraCORE’s “Creativity Lab!” to dream up the right products, solutions, and strategies to “soar to THEIR top!” 

After 30+ years, I know people really want to “get it right” when it comes to innovative products, marketing, communication, training, events, programs, and promotion. People risk vast energy and resources to solve complex problems in education, corporate, e-commerce, retail, and nonprofits. It just doesn’t always work. That’s where I come in.

Clients come to QuaraCORE’s one-of-a-kind, vibrant “Creativity Lab” to confirm and solve the right CORE problems. The lab bubbles with on-the-right-target strategies, products, and solutions thanks to our extensive experience, unique creative strategies, power prototyping, and of course, QuaraCORE’s talented team. Ruby slippers, clown shoes, Pantone-colored gum balls, candy, and cool coloring tools add to the creative spark. 

With a BFA in Graphic Design from C-MU, I began my career at Pearson and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. I built Quarasan, a successful educational development firm, before launching QuaraCORE in 2014. In 2012, I also started my own e-commerce company, Teacher Peach, to learn the ropes of e-commerce retail and nonprofit givebacks, valuable to all industries. This part-time experiment is now a top seller of teacher gift totes and classroom products on Amazon, adding even more new ideas to my creative problem-solving arsenal. 

I’ve got an active family life and I'm a motivational speaker, sharing humorous, clarifying insights from my entrepreneurial adventures, creative antics, and my push to weave all I can into 24 hours. I blog, post, and am finally writing a book on creativity (between 2 & 6 AM). Reach out; I'd love to hear what's on your mind. Really. 312-981-2540/email randi@quaracore.com.
