For as long as she can remember, Rachel has always been interested in human behavior and culture. As the daughter of two university professors—a historian and a political scientist—she spent her childhood in different countries including the U.S., England and Israel. Perhaps as a result of this early experience and her keen interest in diverse cultures, Rachel became an avid traveler, spending long periods of time in countries such as India, Indonesia, the Philippines, Uganda, Kenya, Madagascar and Pakistan, where she trekked in the high Himalayas – learning about the local traditions, hiking and exploring.
Rachel holds a B.A. degree in Behavioral Sciences (Psychology, Anthropology and Sociology) and has an M.A. degree in Social-Organizational Psychology from Columbia University.
After completing her Masters, she worked for several management consulting firms, including PriceWaterhouseCoopers, KPMG Consulting and Towers Perrin, where she managed high profile clients.
