She's impressed by The Sharpham Trust's ethos. "I really believe Sharpham is living its mission," she said. "The Estate is living up to what it says it wants to achieve and I want a role in that".
Assistant House Manager
Rachel loves meeting the retreatants when she's looking after Sharpham House.
"It's enjoyable to get to know people from all different walks of life while I'm here," she says.
Rachel completed an 8-week course in mindfulness a decade before she ended up working here. "I felt then that Sharpham was a special place that I felt an affinity with and I hoped one day I'd work at. Now here I am and it has lived up to my expectations."
