      Rachelle's Answer

      "I had a very healthy relationship with my previous employer. She was easy to approach, and we would bounce ideas off of each other quite often. I would sum it up as a relationship lead by strong mutual respect.

      I have had healthier relationships in the past with previous employers, but we did the best that we could. Our communication styles were very different, which made it challenging at times."
