On this episode:

With her 60th birthday on the horizon, Rachel has been looking for interesting new experiences - such as taking part in The Story Attic podcast! Her story includes how she has been a big sister to three very different brothers, but not all at the same time. She also talks about her involvement in international education for 35 years, including living and working outside the UK, the diagnosis of her beautiful daughter’s profound and multiple learning difficulties, which brought travelling to an end, and the subsequent challenges and opportunities of the past 18 years.

At present, Rachel is based in Bournemouth on the south coast of England. As well as being a daughter, sister, wife and mother, Rachel is a college director, charity ambassador, board member for the town centre’s Business Improvement District, and has founded a local international festival, One World By The Sea.

Her current project is writing a book called Happy Silver People in which she shares 60 ideas for leading happier, healthier, and easier lives as we grow older. She is working towards a publication date in late 2022.
