Born in Adelaide, Rachael spent the first ten years of her life living in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, before her family eventually settled in Auckland.

After completing a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) and a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Auckland in 2009, Rachael spent two months in Tanzania interning at the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda. Her time at the International Criminal Tribunal reinforced her passion for human rights and her desire to work with people from all over the world. On returning to New Zealand, Rachael took up a position at Bell Gully in Auckland, where she worked as a Law Clerk and a Solicitor in Commercial Litigation. In 2010 Rachael spent three months in Madrid studying Spanish and being totally immersed in Spanish culture.

Rachael's experiences living in different countries and her mixed Scottish-Chinese heritage give her a unique ability to understand and relate to a wide range of people, and she enjoys the challenges, variety and client-focused nature of immigration advocacy.

Outside of work Rachael enjoys swimming, walking, baking, photography, painting, philosophy, travelling and spending time with friends. One of her favourite New Zealand natural wonders is Hot Water Beach on the Coromandel Peninsula.
