Rachael became an Associate in our Palmerston North office in July 2021, having joined AllanMcNeill in 2012 after graduating from Massey University. She became a Chartered Accountant at the end of 2015.

Growing up on a Sheep and Beef farm, it was the business side of her family farming operation that interested her. As a key part of the Palmerston North agribusiness team, she now provides business and strategic solutions for a number of farming families, just like hers.

Rachael has really enjoyed transitioning a number of her clients to Xero and Figured. She’s seen firsthand the impact utilising software tools has had on her clients’ success.

Rachael is also a busy mum to two toddlers and has a passion for women’s rugby. She plays lock for the Manawatu Cyclones which has made two semi-finals in the nationwide Farah Palmer Cup during Rachael’s time with the team.
