After surviving years of abuse at the hands of a violent partner who isolated her from her friends and family and disconnected her from her career, Rachael found a way out.
She has since shared her story of survival with thousands of people across Australia and abroad to raise awareness of violence against women and to empower other survivors of domestic violence to share their truth.
Her advocacy work has also led to judicial and social change across the country.
Rachael is based in Queensland.
As a mother, I don’t want Faith to be in a work environment where it is expected women tolerate the systemic gender inequity. I want her to be able to work alongside men and to lead men. I want her to have the freedom, confidence and skillset to assess, articulate and negotiate her value in the workforce - to ask for a pay rise, negotiate a contract and to know her worth.
