In 2014, Rachel began freelancing for Pretty52, the third largest of the LADbible Group’s 11 publications. Creating women’s entertainment content on a weekly basis, Rachel soon learnt that she wanted to go into the creative writing industry.

Rachel began working for Hull-based marketing agency, StrawberryToo as a Digital Marketing Executive in 2017.

Outside of work, Rachel enjoys jetting off on a mini-break and loves a city escape. While she’s away, Rachel likes to take pictures of her travels and often records the trip on her GoPro, creating memories to look back on in years to come. If the pics don’t make it into the memory box, they’ll certainly make it onto her Instagram feed!

As well as visiting new places, Rachel enjoys spending time at home cooking for her family and friends and regularly donates food parcels to her local food bank.
