Rachel Pines, 63, of Media, a longtime business consultant, died Thursday, Nov. 7, of cancer at Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Northeast Philadelphia.
For the last 20 years, Mrs. Pines was a senior consultant, vice president, and chief learning officer at Gap International, a business consulting company in Springfield, Delaware County.
"Through her exceptional coaching and consulting, she profoundly impacted thousands of lives," her son, Justin, said.
Born in Chicago, Mrs. Pines graduated from North Shore Country Day School. She received a bachelor's degree from Pomona College in Claremont, Calif., and a master's degree in piano performance from the Peabody Institute in Baltimore. She studied to be a concert pianist but gave it up in favor of transformational consulting because the latter was "her passion," her son said.
