Rachel’ Professional Profile (Click here to see her LinkedIn Profile)

  • Since 2004, as well as co-founding this start-up innovative Yacht Charter Caribbean business with her business partner, she has built a consulting and research practice in Industrial & Organizational Psychology.
  • She has a Ph.D. in Industrial & Organizational (I/O) Psychology and a certificate as a professional coach.
  • She has taught various courses in psychology at two Canadian universities and conducted research, worked as a Senior Psychometric Assessments Consultant and Project Manager, and as a Researcher/Organizational Development Consultant.
  • She has worked and consulted for a number of important organizations including the largest Canadian government departments such as the National Defence, Canada Customs and Revenue Agency, as wells as for the Public Service Commission and large private sector organizations.
  • She is fluent in three languages (French, English, and Spanish).

As an Industrial and Organizational practitioner, she is dedicated at integrating science to her practice and to support employees, other practitioners (HR, managers) and organizations in the development of effective evidence-based people management strategies, policies and programs.

This is achieved by:

  • Leveraging the scientific literature and best practices as insightful comparative information;
  • Investigating the perspective of various stakeholders in the organization;
  • Analyzing organizational processes using quantitative, qualitative and mixed research methods and advanced statistical analysis;
  • As a result, evidence-based organizational recommendations and interventions can be proposed.

Her applied research is also guided by a multidimensional framework she has been developing for years with other Industrial & Organizational researchers. This framework is built on Social and Industrial and Organizational Psychology scientific and proven principles for explaining human behaviors.

According to these fundamental principles, the explanation of human behaviors is only made possible by considering a combination of individual and environmental characteristics. Thus, to understand behaviors in the workplace, she is guided, not only by a framework that explores employees’ characteristics, such as bright and dark personality, attitudes and behaviors at work, but also by the characteristics of the work itself and of the organizational climate and culture.

Some of her areas of expertise are:

  • Leadership Assessment & Development
  • Ethics in the workplace
  • Psychometric Assessments
  • Leadership & Professional Coaching
  • Talent Management
