Rachel Ward

A skilled not-for-profit leader, business developer

and community builder with experience working in 

six different countries around the world.



"Rachel can best be described as a catalyst to all things that are great; she is a beam of energy when it comes to being passionate about life and how she contributes to those around her both professionally and personally, the community in which she lives, and in continuously bettering herself for the sake of others.  I was fortunate enough to work overseas with Rachel with a variety of health-related and community-based projects. Rachel is a driven self-starter and a great person to have on your team. She is dedicated to her work, strategic and organized when it comes to managing her time and resources, educated in many fields with a never-ending drive to learn new things, and equipped with great communication skills. Administratively, she is an organized multi-tasker and thorough with following up with the task at hand.  I learned many things from working alongside Rachel, including the importance of giving every project 110% and being honest and humble in both the challenges and success that one faces along the way.  Any organization would be lucky to have Rachel on their team!"  

- Mary McNeill (Master of Social Work Candidate)


"‘Ridiculously effective' is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Rachel. I have had the pleasure of working with Rachel for the past four years in both a professional capacity at Free the Children and through volunteering at Rachel's organization, RAW.  Rachel's ability to juggle multiple projects, both in her professional life and personal life, is unlike any I've seen before and made a dramatic difference in the productivity level of her team at Free the Children. She is highly charismatic, relatable, and has a talent for engaging, connecting, and motivating diverse groups of people. This is a skill that often takes years to develop among professionals, but it seems to come perfectly naturally to her.  She has a breadth of experience, and is someone that I would trust to excel at any challenge she chooses to conquer. As a team member or a leader, Rachel earns my highest recommendation."

- Siahra Skelton Moen (Policy Analyst with the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General)


"Rachel is an organized and energetic leader who is passionate about her work. She is an effective organizational representative who easily builds and maintains relationships with stakeholders, employees and potential partners. Rachel is also well balanced with consistent engagement in fitness and social justice related activities in her personal time."
