Rachel comes from a large family and has spent most of her life living in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. She attended Yarmouth High School and also completed a management course in the fall of 1997.
She was the first manager of AFN’s retail business, which was named, Your Winners World AFN. Your Winners World AFN grew into a multimillion dollar retail giantand she is very proud of it’s success.
Rachel was elected to the Acadia First Nation Council on June 13, 2015. She is very proud of her 25 years of experience in the retail business which she brings to the economic development team. She strives to help grow AFN into its own sustainable nation. Rachel has great passion for keeping our youths, young adults, and our elders physically active. If we don’t keep active, we start feeling the effects of our health. That is why she encourages our members to stay active, which is the key to good health.
Rachel is honoured that she is able to learn, through her work as a Councillor, about our culture and be a part of some of our amazing committees such as Emergency Management Committee, Rec Fund, Rose Purdy Recreation and Community Centre, Harvest Feast, AFN language committee, and Mi’kmaq Summer Games. “Love the world as your own self, then you truly care for all things.”
