Since 2011, Maclynn’s mission has been to help our clients find true meaning in their romantic lives.

We know that when it comes to finding that authentic spark, there’s no such thing as one-size-fits-all. That’s why Maclynn employs a bespoke approach to matchmaking, empowering you so you feel seen, heard, and understood. The potential partners we will introduce you to aren’t just attractive—they’re highly compatible, and share your values and life goals, too. That means you can forge much deeper, more meaningful connections.

As relationship experts, we eliminate the uncertainty that comes with dating. We provide guidance, coaching, and feedback of only the highest quality, all with a view of elevating every client’s dating experience to a life-changing journey of growth and self-knowledge.

Rachel Vida MacLynn

Having dedicated the first five years of her career to psychology, in 2006, a moment of serendipity saw Rachel pivot from business psychology to professional matchmaking. With all the hallmarks of her ideal job, Rachel realized this was her calling, and eventually took the plunge and set out on her own.

Inspired by her father’s many great life stories and her parents’ philosophy of loving someone for who they are and disregarding labels, Rachel decided overnight to found The Vida Consultancy, now known as Maclynn, a world-class matchmaking service for those seeking the best in life.

The name was rich in symbolism for Rachel. Vida means life in Spanish—and it is also Rachel’s middle name. Vida was a fresh, new start. A chance to live life to its fullest—and not just for Rachel, but for her clients too.
