As passionate as Rachel is about securing compensation for Road Traffic Accident victims, we all need to unwind and de-stress from time to time. Rachel does this by propelling her body through the chlorine waters of her local pool and working out at the gym. Rachel also likes burying her head in a good book. But not at the same time, obviously.
