Combining her strong technical skills with her natural detailed-oriented design approach, Rachael’s passion for her craft  is a breath of fresh air in an often intimidating process. Rachael’s foundation to every design is her client’s unique personal style, and then built upon by layering in effortless natural elements inspired by the beauty of Mother Nature. Growing up in a small beach town on Vancouver Island was the perfect canvas, and Rachael’s signature style pulls inspiration from the blend of water, rock and sand. When she’s not drafting at her desk or scrolling through her Instagram feed, you’ll find Rachael obsessing over photography, travel, and fashion, with a hot americano in hand.
