Rachael has an impressive track record in hotel management which started with a school-based traineeship at a hotel when she was 15 years old.

She moved through diverse roles in restaurants and food and beverage at properties in the Gold Coast including the Palazzo Versace and Marriott Resort & Spa and also gained amazing experience while working as the Catering Tour Manager for Cirque du Soleil’s Australian tour. Having travelled extensively, she has also worked in prestigious venues in both England and Canada before taking over the management of two hotels in Mount Isa for the Hakfoort Group with a team of up to 120. With success in running these two venues, Rachael was transferred with the Group to be the General Manager of the refurbished, prestigious Burke and Wills Hotel in Toowoomba.

With Rachael’s experience in structuring hotels, driving sales and creating successful teams, she has moved to the role of General Manager for the Cooreyosity Group where she oversees three venues – The Spotted Cow, Blank Space and the soon to be opened George Banks.
