Raised on the coast of WA amongst a family of sailors and adventurers. The ocean, shipping, boating, fishing camping and exploring were always a part of my family life. Our passion for the seas had us living in many remote, majestic locations from the island of Ischia in Italy to Karratha and the northern beaches of Perth in WA. I am fluent in Italian and a genuine Aussie, always ready for new adventures, whether it be diving, surfing, sailing or fishing. My greatest passion is the ocean and sharing my love for it with others. I have worked in the marine and tourism industry for over 3 years. 2017 is my first season in the Kimberleys and I'm eager to learn about this beautiful and unique paradise I am fortunate enough to share with you and call my office.
I love being outdoors which makes working in the Kimberley a perfect office and playground for me. I believe the Kimberley lifestyle suits me personally as I consider myself to be a quiet, stress free person, who gets the job done without a fuss.
This is my second year working in the Kimberley and I feel very privileged to do so knowing how unique and remote the environment is. Having grown up in Western Australia I am able to appreciate what's in my own back yard and getting to see all of the untouched land and the history that goes with it whilst working is such a great opportunity and I am taking in as much information as I can while I'm at it!
Since leaving school I have only worked or studied in the outdoor/tourism industries completing marine tourism/outdoor recreation certificates, becoming an outdoor instructor, a swim teacher, a hostess and just recently completing my coxswain certificate. By working up here it's one of the best opportunities to learn and further my skills in boating which is an exciting option for my future.
With a surname meaning 'little boat' it was inevitable that Rachel ended up on one. One of two (a twin) in a family of seven life never held a dull moment. Born to a family of fanatic fishermen & travellers we forever seem to be chasing that bigger catch at another inaccessible location, like off the continental shelf. By the age of 14, Rachel had travelled Australia but Broome captured our hearts. With a great love of nature & the outdoors, Rachel would bring a multitude of fury, feathered & scaly friends home for rehabilitation & release much to horror of my Italian (kill & eat everything) parents. Rachel loves to cook, her sticky date pudding & espresso martini are legendary.
