About Rachel

About Rachel

Role: Customer Service
Hometown: Wicklow
Experience: I worked in Mothercare in Carrickmines as a supervisor for 12 years gaining a wealth of knowledge in the baby and nursery industry. I understand what families are looking for and what they need at the start of their pregnancy journeys. From demonstrating car seats and pushchairs, to exploring different feeding options and advising parents around bathing and nursery items, I really enjoy helping parents make the big decisions.
Family:I know how precious little people are as I have three of my own; two girls aged 13 and 7, and a boy aged 2, so I can dip into my own experiences and offer sage, personal advice too.
