Rachel graduated from the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) with a Bachelor of Laws (First Class Honours) in early 2018 and was awarded the Una Prentice Award for the Highest Achieving Female Law Graduate of her graduating class.
During her time at USC Rachel was an active member of the Law Students’ Association Committee encouraging awareness and discussion around mental health and wellbeing in law.
More recently Rachel has worked in litigation, where she gained experience across a range of matters and claims including contract disputes, leasing, insolvency, consumer law, debt recovery, deceased estates and intellectual property.
She is also a founding member of Future Leaders Sunshine Coast, a new group that has been created for young professionals aged 18-35 years old from any industry.
Born and bred in North Queensland, Rachel is an avid Cowboys supporter and she’s just as comfortable at the beach as she is in the bush.
Inspired by women who break through glass ceilings, Rachel believes in the words of Mary Anne Radmacher, Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, “I will try again tomorrow”.
