Prior to joining Aither, Rachel began her career at the Murray-Darling Basin Authority, giving her an in-depth understanding of the development and implementation of Australian water and environmental water policy. More recently she completed tertiary qualifications in water management and climate change in the Netherlands, Spain and Vietnam, which has given her valuable insights into water policy and management, water scarcity and flooding, and climate change adaptation in both an international and domestic context.
