Get to Know Rachel McGowan

Forefront Living is pleased to introduce our newest teammate at The Outlook at Windhaven (OAW), Rachel McGowan. Rachel fills the role of Marketing Coordinator and is the new friendly face greeting VIPs and prospective residents and their families at the Information Center and at OAW events. We sat down with Rachel to get to know her better through a fun question and answer session. Please read below to learn more about Rachel.

What are you passionate about regarding your professional role?
As the OAW Marketing Coordinator, I enjoy working with the data and numbers aspect of the business, but I am passionate about making people smile and feel like they have been well-taken care of. Serving others is a significant part of my professional drive. I wake up happy just knowing that my contributions at work will positively impact someone’s life.

Where could we find you on the weekend?
On the weekend, you might find me fishing on Lake Bridgeport with my 10-year-old son Liam or cheering in the stands at one of his baseball games. We are also big hockey fans and spend a lot of time watching hockey together. In addition, I am completing my certifications for personal training and sports nutrition, so I am at the gym frequently. I also love listening to live music and attending concerts!

What are some of your favorite foods?
I am a foodie at heart and appreciate experiencing new cuisines. In fact, I don’t think there is a type of fare that I don’t enjoy. Every week at our house, we celebrate Taco Tuesday with a taco dinner. It’s a tradition that my son never lets me skip!

Tell us a little more about yourself:
Liam and I have a menagerie of pets! Our mini zoo includes two Beagles named Jack and Mollie, one Collie named Kate, Henry the cat and Drogon, a bearded dragon. My hobbies include fishing, weightlifting and participating in athletic competitions.

Anything additional you wish to share with future residents?
I have a decade of experience working in active adult communities, covering many roles. Years ago, I started a successful photography business but have retired from being a small business owner. I am thrilled to be working with a vibrant senior community again and look forward to being a part of The Outlook family for a long time.
