Originally hailing from sunny Southern California, Rachel has lived in Berlin since 2013. She originally finished her honours degree in History at the University of Washington and worked for a bit in Seattle, but ultimately decided to leave Mexican food and the Standard system behind and packed her bags for Berlin. Her love for the city started in her third year of University, when she studied Berlin’s history for a semester at the Humboldt University Berlin. She prides herself on giving guests a well rounded and interesting historical perspective. Rachel was also raised in a Jewish home and really enjoys helping Jewish visitors to Berlin explore their heritage. When not in Berlin, Rachel enjoys trips to Potsdam for a fun and exciting way to understand another side of German history, having specialised in Prussian and Cold War history specifically.
