Rachel was born in England and spent part of her childhood growing up in Papua New Guinea as well as Darwin, Australia. She now lives in Belgrade with her husband on his first regional diplomatic post to the West Balkans as well as their two daughters aged 8 and 10.
Rachel is a classically trained musician, having studied at the Royal College of Music in London, and has been fortunate to perform in many prestigious venues including Buckingham Palace. Being a musician enabled her to continue traveling, taking her up to the Arctic Circle, to Japan and all around the Mediterranean.
She is now looking forward to working with the IWC and exploring a new chapter in her life with more philanthropic ventures. In her free time Rachel enjoys walks with her Border Collie, the creative arts and spending time with friends and family.
