Rachel is Wessex lead on Incident Management and manager of P&SO Somerset and Flood Resilience at the Environment Agency.

Rachel is responsible for rebuilding the Agency’s reputation externally with senior Somerset officials & politicians and managing the delivery of large flood risk management projects on the ground, as identified in the Somerset Flood Action Plan. She is also the lead on the setting up of the new Somerset Rivers Authority.
