As a Research Associate, Rachel is thrilled to be a strong support system for senior researchers and their various projects. She contributes daily to new reports and graph designs, monitors field work, and updates databases. Not only a research whiz, Rachel is a self-declared music aficionado, and has quickly taken charge of the office’s music system ensuring everyone has a pleasant listening experience at work.

With both a Master’s Degree in Public Policy from SFU and a Bachelor’s Degree in International Relations from Ohio Northern University, Rachel’s learnings are a huge asset to our team. Before coming to Insights West, Rachel previously taught English as a Second Language for six years, where she mastered her skills of editing/proofreading, client engagement, and program design.

When Rachel isn’t at work, you can probably find her exploring the seawall, tasting new exotic foods during her many travels, or relaxing at home watching the latest episode of Chopped.
