Rachel, a journalist raised in Hastings, has made a name for herself in the United States. She is one of the founding editors of HuffPost Highline, a digital magazine that takes the best of print-magazine journalism online: the depth of reporting, the beautiful writing and the visual appeal. Since its inception in 2015, Highline has won numerous awards including the National Magazine Award. Its most popular stories have drawn upward of a million readers. Throughout her career overseas, Rachel has kept in touch with New Zealand, coming home several times a year and working remotely to spend time with her family. Rachel cherishes the opportunity to bring a magazine back to life she has known for as long as she can remember. Her grandmother used to read North & South from cover to cover.
Rachel’s first full-time job was with a theatre company that toured the country in an ambulance. There’s hardly a town in New Zealand that she hasn’t been to.
