Rachel Reese started her career in the 80's within the defence industry as an avionics software engineer. She later moved into HR where she undertook the recruitment and training of graduates and apprentices.
She decided to follow her brother and sister into law and successfully completed her law society exams during the 90's, it was during this time that she was diagnosed with Gender Dysphoria. As a result of this condition, instead of working within a law firm, something she considered impossible as a “trans” individual back then, she joined The College of Law and later “transitioned” there.
Rachel recently left her role as Interim Production Director from the University to pursue a career in Diversity. She currently runs a trans-consultancy that helps companies become trans-friendly.
