Born in Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos, Rachel Gregoire has lived in both Massachusetts and Florida where she completed her undergraduate degree. Returning to the Turks & Caicos, she continued her studies online at the University of Liverpool. She completed her master's degree in International Finance and Accounting, and shortly after, she was accepted to the University of Walden to pursue her doctorate in Business Administration. Rachel is the mother of a beautiful daughter. In addition to her background in finance, she is an author and a hotelier. She truly believes that no one should allow their pain and adversity to defeat them but instead turn it into something beautiful. She has a genuine passion for others; she enjoys writing, reading, playing the violin, running, and traveling. After losing her dear son to extreme prematurity, Rachel became a founding member of the Turks & Caicos Premature Foundation: finding purpose in every loss.
