Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Rachel’s family moved to Vancouver when she was seven years old.  The first time she visited Whistler to take a ski lesson as a young girl, she knew she had found her greatest passion and her future home.  After completing a degree in International Relations at McGill University, she went to live abroad and further her education.  After having lived and worked in many different countries in her 20s including England, France, Spain and The United States, Rachel returned to Canada and bought her first apartment in Whistler in 2006.  She has a profound love for the mountains and the lakes and is raising her daughter as a Whistlerite.  An entrepreneur and adventurer by nature, she is thrilled to be a co-founder of Elevate Vacations and infuse others with her love of Whistler.
