After going on to grad school, many of my peers there commented on how refreshing it was to have such small class sizes and to actually know many of the people in our cohort. I felt truly lucky to have experienced that already throughout all 4 years of my time at UofGH.

Where is Rachel now?

Rachel is a Registered Psychotherapist (qualifying) and Associate at BR Cook Professional Psychology Corporation. She is also the Director of Recruitment for Spark Lifecare.

I still remain very close with many of my friends from my time as a UofGH student! Not only am I still very close with my peers from my class, but I love the fact that I was able to make friends from all programs. I've been able to celebrate their accomplishments beyond university, including being involved in their wedding parties, their graduate degree celebrations, children and general life.
