Rachel joined Corcoran French in November 2021 as a Registered Legal Executive based in our Kaiapoi office.  Rachel is part of our estates team and also assists with general legal matters.  

Rachel was introduced to the legal world working as a legal secretary at a major firm in London in 2002.  On her return to New Zealand she worked for many years as a speech language therapist, including several years in palliative care at two major hospitals.  In 2018 Rachel returned to the legal world, working as a Legal Assistant at a property law firm in Auckland while completing her Legal Executive Diploma.  She then worked at another highly regarded full service law firm in Auckland as a Legal Executive completing property transactions, trust reviews, estate administration and drafting of wills & enduring powers of attorney.

Rachel is also a Justice of the Peace and volunteers at the Pegasus Community Centre JP desk.

Rachel loves exploring the amazing area that is Canterbury and the wider South Island.  After climbing Kilimanjaro many years ago she feels that her lifetime of exercise requirements are complete but can at times be found cycling the local streets.
