Hi, I'm Rachel, a health coach based in Burlington, Vermont. I do in person coaching and online video coaching!
I received my integrative health coach training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I studied a variety of dietary theories and practical lifestyle coaching methods. With my knowledge, we co-create completely personalized actions based on your goals to move you toward your ideal vision of health within your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and resources.
I have also trained to be a Martha Beck Life Coach. Oprah Winfrey has called Martha "one of the smartest women I know." As a life coach I help people find their best selves and their purpose by helping them let go of what isn't working and embrace or find more of what is working.
Do you want to be healthier and happier? As a health and life coach, I want to help facilitate the change you want to make your life amazing! Let’s work together to create the healthiest and happiest version of you!
Dealing with several chronic illnesses and food intolerances early in life has enabled me to always put my health first because I had to to feel better. I have been quoting self help books and health and fitness books since high school. Although difficult at times to feel sick, I am grateful for that path that led me here.
Since becoming a mother in 2002 and a pre-natal and post-natal yoga teacher and a natural childbirth educator in 2007, I have had a strong interest in helping women celebrate and thrive as they find themselves again and again through the transitions of womanhood — puberty, adulthood, motherhood and menopause. While all of my previous experiences have helped me become a healthier and happier person, it was not until beginning coaching that I truly understood how to create a fulfilling life and help others do the same!
In addition to coaching, I am a teacher and a photographer. I have taught elementary school, middle school English Language Arts and Yoga. Currently I am enjoying using my photography to take high school senior portraits and do volunteer work, most recently photographing rescue dogs.
