Rachel Adair has been living in Nakusp for a couple of years now and is happy to be close to her family who have all moved to the area from southern Ontario. She has been involved in the community through youth work and instructing English to newcomers, and she is excited to take on new challenges.
A student for life, Rachel is working on her final MA interdisciplinary project that intertwines rural community development and improving access to services that local 'helping professionals' provide. She can see the light at the end of the tunnel, and she's already thinking about what courses she wants to take next!
Rachel is a traveler at heart and has had the chance to live abroad in Switzerland, Wales, South Korea and Laos. She may not be fluent, but she believes that taking up the local language offers mutual respect and the opportunity to build meaningful relationships when she's far away from home. Having said that, her home here in the Kootenays is paradise.
Rachel loves swimming, gardening, doing yoga, riding her scooter, reading, spending time with family and friends, making art, and creating her own body products.
