Originally from Northumberland, Rachael studied at Newcastle college for her GNVQ in Hospitality Management in 2001. Once completed she then travelled to Chicago for 6 months to work at a 5 star Marriott Hotel and Resort. She then returned to complete her degree in Newcastle and as she loved the USA so much, she moved back for 18 months and worked as Banqueting manager, helping to run events for over 1,000 people.
Coming back to the UK she then moved to London to work at a new Marriott Hotel in Canary Wharf. She spent 5 years there starting off as a Restaurant Supervisor and working her way up to Event Manager. She started working at Kings Place over 3 years ago and loves the day-to-day challenges of working in Events.
