At work

Rachael has several years of administration and accounts experience and is responsible for the accounting, documentation, and general administration.  Rachael also provides support and assistance to the financial planning work.

There is lots to learn in the role and to learn about the business, something which Rachael is thoroughly enjoying.

At play

Rachael lives with her partner, Matt and their 3 children, who keep her very busy.

Their interests are her interests, so lots of sport, mainly football and gymnastics.  When Rachael isn’t running around after the children, she has a keen interest in holistic health and is currently learning reflexology.  She also enjoys walking with friends, live music, meals out but also a good movie night in with a glass of wine!
