Origin Story

Sidekick for Hire® was founded in 2015 with a simple idea: help people be happier by freeing up their time to focus on what they do best! Today, we achieve this mission by assisting the busy professionals at nonprofits, trade associations, and other mission-driven organizations with learning-based events and project management – freeing up time so they can best serve the communities who depend on them.

About the Founder: Rachel Buczynski

Rachel loves travel, animals, Halloween, and efficiency. She’s a classic oldest child. And – she really loves helping people be their best selves.

Rachel holds a B.A. from Texas A&M University (whoop!) and a Certificate in Event Management from George Washington University. She’s currently pursuing an M.S. in Adult Education and Human Resource Development at James Madison University. Before launching Sidekick for Hire, she served for over a decade in a variety of roles at national U.S. nonprofits honing key Sidekick superpowers like event planning, project management, training development, and writing and editing. She has extensive experience with organizations focused on the fire and emergency services, immigrant services, and international diplomacy.

Rachel believes we are all the Superheroes of our own stories, and that we can reach our full capacity by calling in for backup. What could your organization and staff accomplish with a Sidekick?
