Rachel graduated from Lancaster University in 2014 with a first in Spanish and Management. During her year abroad she undertook a work placement at a law firm in Spain whilst also falling in love with the Spanish way of life. After she graduated Rachel went back out to Spain and worked for a Swedish real estate company in Marbella where she was able to put her language skills to the test and develop a more natural fluency to her Spanish conversation. The Spanish lifestyle captured her heart but, having always had law in mind, Rachel made the move back to the UK in 2017 and was delighted to have joined Hay & Kilner as a solicitor apprentice in our Residential Property Unit in 2018.
Outside of work, Rachel is a keen footballer and Newcastle United fan. She loves running and has completed the Great North Run, Marbella and Malaga half marathons. These days, if she’s not selling (& eating) cakes with her sister at Build-a-Bake, Rachel can be found playing 5-a-side, at her local theatre group, or in Marbella catching up with friends over tapas!
