Rachel Mullen

Rachel Mullen is the owner of Music City Suds in Nashville, TN. Music City Suds is proud to be the unofficial soapmaker of country music! Her soaps have appeared in celebrity gift bags at the CMT and CMA awards, and she has created custom soaps for some of country's biggest stars, including Lady Antebellum, Trace Atkins, and Barbara Mandrell. Music City Suds products have also graced the shelves of Nordstrom, TJ Maxx, The Country Music Hall of Fame, and the Opry.

Rachel has been the organizer of the annual Tennessee Soap and Candle Meeting (now the Southeastern Bath & Body Conference) since 2013. In her free time, she also teaches classes under the moniker The Compulsive Lyer. When she's not soaping, you can find Rachel, her husband, and her daughter traveling the world or snuggling with the world's most annoying dachshunds in Nashville.

Chloe Tate

Chloe originally joined the Tennessee Soap and Candle team back in June of 2018 as an event planning intern. After a successful 2019 conference, Rachel asked her to come back as a co-founder and event organizer. Together, they’ve rebranded the event as the Southeastern Bath & Body Conference.

Chloe is also part of the Lucky Break Consulting team and works remotely for Multiplying Good while living in her hometown of Alpharetta, Georgia. In addition to her regular work, she is also creating her own skincare line set to launch this upcoming summer.

Chloe’s sister describes her as “relentlessly cheerful,” and she has come to embrace the term. When not juggling a million balls in the air, you can find Chloe crafting away in her room or dancing around the house to Dave Matthews Band.
