Working with Rayna in the past I was confident about brining her in to work with zSpace. I’m impressed with how fast she took on understanding our product (something difficult to describe and market) and rapidly integrated into being a member of our team.
— George Warren, EVP Education, zSpace
Working with Rayna has been wonderful. She is a problem solver. Although she sees the big picture, she has a keen eye to see to execute the small details. While I had baked a good sound grant cake, Rayna is icing the cake that will ultimately result in being funded. I look forward to working with Rayna in the future. She is the secret sauce for grant writing.

Rayna provides impeccable service and attention to detail. More than that, she is a champion of our company and finds opportunities to promote and connect us. We would recommend Rayna, particularly for companies who need a great advocate.

RYE consulting is really a one of a kind consulting service. They provide solutions, ideas for change, and a highly knowledgable team of consultants who are willing to go above and beyond to ensure success. However, I think what distinguishes RYE above anyone else is their commitment and passion for the work with their clients. From my first meeting with Rayna and Kristen, I felt that we were on the same side and part of a team. They actually roll up their sleeves and provide assistance with anything that is needed. RYE truly is the best in the business!

Rayna is very detailed and thorough in her work. She is highly organized and kept the team on target with the schedule and with deadlines. We learned from her wealth of experience and knowledge as we pushed the bar with this project. She is very reasonable; her costs to the district were acceptable, the end project was very well developed. She has skill in working with all kinds of personalities at all grade levels. I highly recommend Rayna and will continue to use her as we move forward in our district goals.

Ms. Yaker brings a wealth of experience and a breadth and depth of insight unrivaled by any others in the ed-tech space. There is nothing she does not know and if on rare occasion she’s not profoundly in the know she’ll reach out to her vast network and get us the best answers in short order. Her nose to grindstone determination for us to succeed coupled with her appreciation of the big picture is a welcome addition to our continued growth.

Rayna’s insight and experience in education was an asset to proposal development- she continually asked questions to push our thinking and to ensure that the requirements of the RFP were met. Working across an international company Rayna’s creative solution brought together Pearson solutions from Professional Development to manipulatives while keeping the schools unique need at the forefront of her solution.
— Stephanie Fisher, Director of Common Core, Pearson
