Rachel is currently Assistant Policy Manager at AVPN. She supports the ongoing development of AVPN's policy programmes and believes in the power of multisector collaboration between social investors and policymakers to bring about solutions that can better support communities in Asia.
Her keen interest in international development started from an internship in Uganda where she worked on income-generation in a community school and conducted qualitative research around stigma faced by the deaf community. The experience taught her the importance of responsible and sustainable development and she is always on the lookout for new opportunities to contribute better. She believes in the potential of using finance for good and is excited to build a richer and more diverse social investment ecosystem.
Rachel holds a Bachelor's Degree in Economics from the University of British Columbia (Vancouver). In her spare time, she can be found practicing her beginner's-level Bahasa Indonesia.
