Rachel is an admirer of all creatures great and small. Quite literally, in fact, as she lives with Cole, her beloved 13.5 stone Great Dane and Pete and Sebastien Turtleback, her two tiny turtles.
A history buff with a particular interest in the world wars, Rachel is a natural first pick when it comes to quiz teams on Express Solicitors social nights. She is also fairly knowledgeable regarding classic literature, having devoured the works of Oscar Wilde and Jane Austen long before switching from story books to legal tomes.
Music-wise, Rachel is a classic-indie obsessive, citing Joy Division, The Cure and The Smiths as her favourite bands. Although after establishing herself in the Personal Injury Law industry, she now has to turn a deaf ear to the certain Morrissey lyrics, for example the description of ‘evil legal eagles’ in his 2004 song ‘You Know I Couldn’t Last’.
Instead, her favourite quote comes from her literary hero Oscar Wilde, which Rachel uses for inspiration on her quest to be a true original: ‘Be yourself. Everyone else is taken’.
