Rachel's Profile

Originally from the Welsh Valleys, I moved to New Zealand to be closer to my mother’s family as a child, and lived in Auckland for most of my formative years. I moved 

down to Palmerston North for university in 2010 and never moved back. My then-boyfriend followed me down, and in the time since we’ve married, bought our first home in Friendly Feilding, welcomed our daughter, and really put down roots. Safe to say, the Manawatu is now our home.

I’ve had a varied working history, starting with a Bachelor’s of Science, English tutoring, and managing a café, and I am also a passionate volunteer with different community groups. This variety has helped develop a wide scope of skills and opportunities, including meeting a wonderful variety of people in our region. Many of the businesses I have worked for have been small-family run organisations, and I love the dynamic that these kinds of working environments foster.

Property Management is a new field for me, but my administration and management background have set me up to tackle this new challenge. Working with a strong, successful team makes everything run smoothly, and the experience and passion here at Watsons is undeniable. I look forward to supporting out talented Property Managers as our team continues to strive for excellence.
