Rachel began working in the environmental sector as an intern for a non-profit organisation, Sustain Dane. At Sustain Dane, Rachel worked in the grants and funding department. She gained insight into non-profit funding, local sustainability programmes, and trends in sustainability. Rachel also taught a wildlife explorers club at the Nelson Institute of Environmental Studies.
Rachel double majored at the University of Wisconsin Madison with a degree in Environmental Studies, and Operations and Technology Management. She also studied sustainable business at Copenhagen Business School.
Rachel joined Preferred by Nature in July 2019.
I became interested in a career in sustainability after taking a Population Health class in college. I did a project on the health effects of climate change. Ever since then, I knew I wanted to pursue a career that would positively impact the planet. Working for NEPCon enables me to utilise my technical skills while promoting sustainability in the forestry industry. I enjoy working with clients who want to make responsible supply chain decisions for the sake of generations to come.
