For twenty years, Rachel has been providing assistance to innovators and ideators so that they can get their great ideas off the ground. During this time, her roles have included: working in private practice in New Zealand and the UK; heading an in-house legal team in the UK; and acting as Assistant Commissioner of Trade Marks.
Rachel is currently the General Counsel for Powerhouse Ventures Limited, and is the founder of aRc intellectual property. She is also on the Board of Trustees for Ministry of Awesome which supports early-stage entrepreneurs.
Joining the Endometriosis Board of Trustees in 2017 was another opportunity for Rachel to assist in removing barriers for those wanting to realise their full potential, through supporting the Endometriosis New Zealand team in providing information, education and support to women with endometriosis.
Rachel now lives in Christchurch where she is an amateur wife, trainee mum, and experienced earthquake survivor (with great tips on escaping a 20 story building when you’re 6 months pregnant if needed).
