Bio:

Rachel Homan is a provincial and national champion curler from Orleans, Ontario. Rachel was born April 5, 1989 in Ottawa. She is a former Canadian Junior Champion and was the skip of the 2013 Scotties Tournament of Hearts and 2014 Scotties Tournament of Hearts championship team.

She began her dominance in the sport when she was bantam aged, winning four straight provincial bantam championships from 2003 to 2006. She had won four championships while no other curler had won even twice.

At the 2007 Canada Winter Games in Whitehorse, Yukon, she skipped her Ontario rink to a gold medal. Rachel won a provincial junior championship in 2009, earning her team a berth at the 2009 Canadian Junior Curling Championships. At the Canadian Juniors, she skipped the Ontario team to a 10-2 record after the round robin. In 2009, her rink was named the World Curling Tour's "rookie team of the year." She won the 2010 provincial championship and went on to represent Ontario at the 2010 Canadian Junior Curling Championships. At the 2010 Canadian Junior Curling Championships, Rachel Homan, with Emma Miskew, Laura Crocker, and Lynn Kreviazuk won the Junior National Title in dramatic fashion by completing the event with an undefeated record of 13 wins and 0 losses - only the fourth women's team to do so. The team represented Canada at the 2010 World Junior Curling Championships in Flims, Switzerland.

The 2012-13 curling season has been Rachel’s most successful to date on the World Curling Tour. She earned her first Grand Slam victory at the 2012 Masters of Curling where she beat Chelsea Carey in the final. She qualified for her second Scotties Tournament of Hearts by going undefeated at the 2013 Ontario Scotties Tournament of Hearts. Rachel began the 2013 Scotties Tournament of Hearts by winning the Ford Hot Shots skills competition. Rachel’s rink tore through the competition representing Ontario at the 2013 Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Kingston, Ontario. The team only had one loss during the round robin. The team was in the final, where they faced Jones , won by a score of 9-6. With the win, the Homan rink became the first Ottawa-based team to win the Canadian women's curling championship. The win earned Rachel and her team the right to represent Canada at the 2013 World Women's Curling Championship in Riga, Latvia. Rachel and her team would win the Bronze medal at that World Championships that year.

Her success over the last couple of seasons qualified her team for an automatic entry at the 2013 Canadian Olympic Curling Trials. As defending Scotties champions from 2013, the rink earned the right to represent Team Canada at the 2014 Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Montreal. Rachel’s team went through the entire tournament without a single loss, defeating Alberta's Val Sweeting in the final. She became the youngest skip ever to win back-to-back Scotties. Rachel was awarded the Sandra Schmirler Most Valuable Player Award, and ended the event with a stellar 90% shooting percentage.

Her 2014 Scotties win earned her team a berth at the 2014 Ford World Women's Curling Championship in Saint John, New Brunswick. Rachel and her Canadian team won a silver medal at the Championship.

Rachel currently resides in Ottawa. She has a degree in Human Kinetics from the University of Ottawa. She is currently a personal trainer and professional speaker.
