Rae is a go-getting, effusive lady who was enjoying a successful career in finance when I first met her. She had never married and she didn’t have children. She really wanted both.
Rae is a classic example of the high-flying clients to whom we at Maclynn are accustomed. She had the business acumen and incredible drive to have climbed high up the corporate ladder – but she also had a humble, family-oriented, gentle side known only to a certain few (including me, her matchmaker). In Rachel’s experience, the men she was meeting only fit into one of these two categories.
I introduced Rae to her match in October 2018. In Rae’s own words, he was the ‘salt-of-the-earth’. He’s assertive, strong, tenacious, but incredibly proud of where he’s come from and who he is. He had recently changed path from corporate finance to entrepreneurism and had created an incredible organization with a philanthropic initiative.
Rae and her match hit it off as if they’d known one another all their lives. They fell head over heels, have been introduced to each other’s families, and are still together to this day.
