She has over 10 years of experience in Track and Field coaching and competing, personal training, sports performance, and Kinesiology. Rachel competed in NCAA Division II Track and Field for South Florida as a distance runner. Due to several significant injuries and medical burnout, her athletic career was cut short.

This experience led her to find her passion for physical rehabilitation and she strives to share her knowledge and skills to help individuals get back to the things they love.

Rachel believes that Kinesiologists are the critical final step in getting you back on your feet because they solidify the progress made from other allied health professionals using exercise prescription. As a Kinesiologist, her ultimate goal is to foster a newfound appreciation and confidence for movement, mind, and body through consistent and mindful practice.

In her spare time, Rachel loves researching the next great restaurant to experience, Olympic weightlifting, cooking, making jokes that reference "The Office," and going on long walks with her partner.
