Rachel is an educator, speaker and social entrepreneur who specialises in bullying and self-harm prevention.
Rachel has worked in public and private school settings since 1996, across four states in many different roles. Students have filled her every day at work as Head of Faculty, Head of Welfare, Deputy Principal and Classroom Teacher and she loved every moment.
Over the last 10 years, Rachel has seen bullying and harm (particularly online) spiral out of control and it doesn’t discriminate. After a student in her community took his life, she decided to actively work to change Australia’s cultural acceptance of bullying and started Stymie; an anonymous online reporting system for use in schools nationally.
