Rachel Murray has been a conscious consumer and builder of websites for over 15 years. Originally she planned to be an archivist, but after buying a book on HTML in 1998, she quickly found her calling. While making information available to historians was a wonderful path, she decided making information available to the world was even more exciting. Having worked at startups, media companies, nonprofits & the World Health Organization, Rachel has had experience working in a multitude of environments. In 2012, after a frustrating time trying to find a skincare product that both worked for her and wouldn’t kill her, she thought she could build a website that could help others. Her love of research and sharing information finally came together and Kind Eye was born.
After launching Kind Eye in 2014 and developing relationships with many brands and retailers, she learned that the way they find each other is cumbersome, outdated and expensive. She took on a new project, Kind Eye for Business, which could help act as a finely tuned always-on tradeshow for buyers and sellers, specifically dedicated to eco-friedly, mission focused brands. Rachel’s love of making useful information available and easy to find continues with Kind Eye for Business.
Clare has been building websites with database-driven content management since 1997. She is a third-generation geek, and enjoys helping information sort itself out and find its place on the web. She specializes in perl and PHP templates, XML feeds and imports, and in planning information architecture for built-in flexibility and extensibility. Prior to doing this, she was a content management consultant and developer for WHO, where she implemented and refined a large-scale open source content management system, integrated third-party data, and migrated content, all while writing sensible and thorough documentation.

These direct interactions sparked her desire to help niche beauty & lifestyle companies become strong players in the industry. Today, MIA BELL BRANDS, helps indie makers navigate the retail space and increase their retail presence at the national level.
