Human Risk Management is the fusion of Rachel's work, academic studies and her personal life experience. 


Rachel is credentialed with (two) Masters’ degrees, qualifications in psychology, brain science and leadership and policy in mental health.


Combined with almost 20 years’ experience working in global financial institutions, Rachel speaks the languages of both the business and research worlds to create and apply practical evidence-based solutions to human risk problems. 

Rachel is a forward thinker and a leading authority on the human brain & behaviour. She is dedicated to sharing her knowledge with boards, CEOs and their teams, to help them meet their legal and regulatory obligations around Human Risk including Mental Health Risk while also increasing the value of their most valuable asset, their human capital.

Over the years she has created a solid network of subject matter experts and collaborative relationships with organisations who are also pioneers in their fields. 

**  Rachel's interest in the brain and her subsequent studies were initially motivated by a determination to hear again after loss resulting from surgery to remove a sizeable brain tumour. Her ongoing learning and work in this field is driven by a persistent curiosity and a desire to share and apply this knowledge to create meaningful change.
