Rachel joined the Board in August 2014 as a Presbytery representative, having also been a Board member in 2001 – 2003 before leaving Otago for a new ministry role.
As an ordained Presbyterian minister for 28 years Rachel led congregations in Whakatane, Napier, Ranfurly and Ashburton before returning to Dunedin last year to become part of the ministry team at Mornington Presbyterian Church. Her special interest on the board, Presbyterian Support’s rest homes in Dunedin, arises from her passion for pastoral care for all ages.
Rachel’s governance experience has included membership on the Presbyterian Council of Assembly and the Central Committee of the World Council of Churches. In her spare time Rachel enjoys delivering Meals on Wheels, swimming, family activities, her Book Group, and French conversation.
