Meet Rachel, our Communications Coordinator
Where were you born?
Good old North Vancouver!
How did you get into marketing/communications?
Strictly speaking, sideways? I come from a writing and dance background, but I often find myself in marketing.
What class in school has proven to be the least useful?
African Dancing and drumming. Though it was an easy credit!
What is the best building of all time?
I feel somewhat underqualified to answer this one. I have a habit of entering every old church I pass when I’m travelling. I’d say one of my absolute favourites is Sacre-Coeur in Paris.
Best brunch spot in Vancouver is…
Somehow I never brunch?
You never leave home without…
Your Great Escape would be to…
What single piece of technology makes your life easier?
What is your spirit animal?
Probably a cat. I’ve been known to stretch…
What word do you have trouble saying?
I can’t seem to get “bagel” right.
