About Me

My interests: I enjoy permaculture gardening, and encouraging my children to cook with what we produce. My youngest has inspired in me a new obsession with bird-watching.

My first job: waitressing, during the school holidays in a café in my home village of Lamlash, on the Isle of Arran.

Alternative career choice: I would have been a humanitarian aid worker.

"We were helpfully advised [by Rachel] through a long and difficult case which was resolved to our satisfaction."
