The Tisserand Institute Team: Rachel Andorfer

by | General, Personal Profile

Sometimes it’s good to switch the camera around and interview the interviewer. You know Rachel Andorfer as the one who talks to our graduates, and perhaps also as the one who tells you all about our upcoming courses through her emails. And while she likes to stay behind the scene, we thought she should (re)introduce herself.  

Other than interviewing and writing emails, Rachel is responsible for our social media posts, and has written wonderful overview blogposts for us: read this one here to get an overview of essential oil extraction, and here on how to start using them safely. 

Outside of the work she does at TI, Rachel is cultivating a wonderful garden and shares her plant growing adventures on her YouTube channel Auxhart Gardening

What makes the Tisserand Institute work possible is a team of dedicated people who build every part of it, and we’re very happy Rachel is a part of that team. 


  • Hana Tisserand

    Hana is the COO of the Tisserand Institute. She supervises our staff of seven, manages our teaching platform, organizes training courses, hosts webinars, commissions blog posts, oversees the creation of infographics and social media content, and writes our newsletters. Somehow, she also finds time to write her own blog posts and she is our go-to IT person. Being raised in a family of doctors and nurses has given her an underlying interest in the workings of the human body, which later manifested in her specialization in medical translation. Hana is a Czech citizen with 7 years of experience in translation and interpreting, her other languages being French and English. Working as an interpreter for politicians, authors, educators and medical professionals has given her a valuable perspective on how to effectively communicate information and avoid dispute. Hana has been working with Robert Tisserand since 2015, and has a unique perspective on how information about essential oils is sourced, processed and communicated.
