We believe it's “always about people” and that rings soooo true for our team at RAYNE IX. We have such an amazing, supportive, smart, fun, funny, resourceful, kickass team that we get to work with day in and day out. It’s truly a blessing.


Kiley Peters is the founder of RAYNE IX. She is a serial entrepreneur, executive coach, and small business consultant. Having personally counseled hundreds of small and medium-sized businesses on operations, business development, digital marketing, and consumer behavior analysis over the last 17 years Kiley is incredibly passionate about serving small business owners.


Amanda Nowak is one of our business coaches and consultants at RAYNE IX and facilitates RAYNE IX's Defining Success 1:1 Workshops as well as our soon-to-launch Masterclass. She has over a decade of business ownership experience, scaling her business to over a million in revenue while managing a growing team. We're excited to have her expertise to share with our clients as we help them navigate entrepreneurship. In her free time she loves to travel, explore new restaurants with her husband (also an entrepreneur), and go on long walks with their dog, Annie.


Erin Desing is the Client Operations Director of RAYNE IX. She supports our clients through her broad skillset in project management, operations, and marketing. With a love for problem solving and organization, Erin is always ready to tackle her next project. When she’s not geeking out over the newest project management software, you can find her at the gym or listening to a podcast at the pool. Say hello to our newest Florida resident! 


Melissa Hoppe is the Marketing + Engagement Director at RAYNE IX. She has helped run large organizations for close to a decade and is excited to bring her mad organizational skills to the RIX Team. Melissa helps keep RIX engines running smoothly behind the scenes. When she’s not working, Melissa enjoys playing with her three kids, and occasionally finds time for some gardening and indulging in binging on BRAVO television shows. Don't judge.
