Dr. Rachel MK Headley


“Rachel enjoys a good challenge and has over two decades of experience managing big projects, uniting diverse stakeholders, guiding teams through change, and leading complex and ground-breaking achievements.
She is a powerful advocate of community: in her own team, among her neighbors, and her network of clients, colleagues, and friends.
She is a TEDx speaker and serves on the Council of Trustees at South Dakota State University. Rachel is a Mensa PhD scientist, a certified Project Management Professional, a global citizen, a choral singer, and an art patroness. Her great-grandfather homesteaded in Brookings County, South Dakota, and Rachel spent her formative years on a small family farm. She finds beauty in the prairie, its big skies, and its people.

Rachel’s 2024 Word of the Year:  RICHNESS – the quality of being pleasingly deep or strong; the quality of having something plentiful that is valuable or interesting.

In 2024, RGI will express the richness of our expertise, of our client service, of our internal processes, of our complex understanding of organizations, and our team’s personal interests and lives.  This richness is what makes RGI the consultancy of choice for both our staff and clients.
