About Ocelot Media

Hi, I’m Rachael, lover of crocheting, gaming, lattes, rats, travel, and camping. I’m also a liberal progressive, so if that’s an issue, kindly move along. I am so grateful to live in the Pacific Northwest, near Portland with all it has to offer as well as an infinite supply of trails and gorgeous nature.

So, in the long long ago times (the early 2000s), I started fiddling around with building websites. A bit later, I messed around with WordPress. This was all just for fun – weird, I know. I had no intention of ever doing this as an actual job. 

In 2012, I was a stay-at-home mom who worked part-time as a vet tech. When I started meeting more people in my community, I found myself bothered at their lack of web presence. So that started the bartering stage of my business. “I’ll build you a website in exchange for your farm’s produce!”

It grew from there. Eric, my husband, has always worked in digital marketing. He gave me a needed push to lean into web design, and eventually that grew into an interest in everything related to it. I soon realized that businesses need so much more than a website. In 2015, Ocelot Media was born.

My passion is the same as it was many years ago – helping local businesses succeed. And I really mean that! Eric and I love learning about other small businesses and figuring out exactly how we can help them grow.


*Non-GMO and Organic is a giant marketing scam. Just a little FYI. 🙂
