Rachel joined Clan in August 2022 as a solicitor. She was a trainee solicitor in the Scottish Government, and has also worked as a solicitor based in a Women’s Aid branch.
Prior to qualifying Rachel worked at Clan Childlaw as the Street Legal co-ordinator, and before this worked for nearly 20 years in a variety of charities, supporting people and advocating for them, in particular asylum seekers and refugees. It was working in these settings that inspired Rachel to train to become a solicitor, because she could see that the law could make a difference and sometimes change people’s lives for the better.
Rachel is really committed to making sure that children and young people are able to use the law to improve their lives.
In her spare time, Rachel loves swimming in the sea, running (slowly), gardening and baking.
