Rachel Cain was raised in Campbell River, British Columbia and graduated from Carihi Secondary School in 2005. She is a first generation Canadian whose parents emigrated from England and Hong Kong. Following her graduation in 2013 from Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, Rachel has relocated to Campbell River.
Rachel graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and a Bachelor of Social Work. Her interests in social welfare and at-risk populations were sparked when her family adopted her two special needs sisters. Since then she has worked with a diverse range of issues from mental health to disabilities, which has only made her more invested in helping others in whatever way is possible.
Recently, Rachel has completed a practicum with the Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc Band in Kamloops where she worked with Elders and Aboriginal offenders in their First Nations Court.
Rachel is excited to be back home in Campbell River and is eager to learn more about Aboriginal cultures on Vancouver Island. She welcomes both the opportunity and the challenge of working with the Sasamans Society.
