AKA RP, Picken
Rachel lives in Cornwall with her boyfriend, two daughters, aged 9 and 7, and two pet rabbits.
Known to friends as RP or Picken, she is a Frazzled Single Mummy (with a live-in boyfriend) who somehow juggles a national PR career with volunteering for the school bake sale.
A huge advocate for positive mental health and body image, Rachel is a reformed cheese and wine lover, lapsed pole-fit enthusiast and novice Stand Up Paddleboarder.
RP is most likely to be found sharing her love of post-it notes, chilling out on the Marshmallow (her bed), or enjoying the beach and move nights with her spirited girls.
In her professional life, Rachel is a Chartered PR consultant, usually working with the UK’s best universities to wrangle difficult messaging and strategies.

Claire lives on the Bucks/Oxfordshire border with her husband, 8yo son, labrador and ginger moggie called Bertie.
By weekday, CEB is an event professional and academic – soon to be joining the University of Northampton as senior lecturer in events management. She is currently Head of Business Development and Events at English National Ballet, heading up the development of all commercial income streams, and former director of Cornwall-based Mackerel Sky Events.
By weekend, she is CEO of Milton Keynes Lightning - a professional ice hockey team, competing in the NIHL National Division; and she’s an U8s rugby coach with the Buckingham Bulldogs.
Claire is a fan of wine, cheese and curling up with a good book as much as watching ballet, watching rugby and ice hockey, being on/in/next to the sea, and dancing to disco music. She is also an advocate of positive mental health and finding the joy in the ordinary.
