Meet the Coach
Holistic Health Coach
Rachel has been a wellness professional for over 15 years and at various times in her career has been a massage therapist, professional chef, health coach, non-profit director, yoga teacher, and energy worker. She began her personal journey into wellness after her brother died of cancer when she was 21 and she had to come to terms with life and death and what it all meant to her. She realized that life was for living and for living well!
At that time in her life living well meant traveling the world and discovering new foods, new ways of thinking, and new modes of being. Rachel spent ten years as a private chef in the luxury yachting industry and was able to fine tune her love of fresh, whole foods that nourish the body and delight the tastebuds. While exciting and enjoyable, this transient and high stress lifestyle led Rachel to pursue a more settled existence with a focus on her own well-being and she pursued a certification as a Holistic Health and Lifestyle Coach. She received her training as a Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s cutting-edge Health Coach Training Program.
During her training, she studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. Among those teachers were Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities.
Rachel’s education has equipped her with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. Drawing on these skills and her knowledge of different dietary theories, Rachel works with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.
During the past five years Rachel has healed herself from adrenal exhaustion and specializes in working with successful professionals who are struggling with balance and vitality in their lives.

Communication is the key to any good relationship, including the one we have with ourselves.
At Integrous Health Solutions we believe the path to wellness begins once we start to listen to the subtle messages our bodies send us every day. When we listen to those messages and respond to them appropriately, we feel healthy and empowered. When we ignore those messages our bodies start yelling at us in the form of dis-ease.

“Rachel’s ‘Cooking with Kale’ class was [wonderful], I learned things I could do with Kale which I never thought of before, especially using it Raw and then making Pesto, wow that was delicious! The recipes provided were really helpful and well written…I could not wait to put what I learned into use the next day and quite frankly everyday since this class.”Herb Levin LMT MMP
“Rachel’s teaching approach was informative, enthusiastic and engaging. I so enjoyed the ‘hands-on’ approach of the class, and I really felt a sense of community and teamwork, and I was able to connect with wonderful people too. I’m an avid cook for many years and I was able to learn new things that I’ve incorporated into my cooking repertoire.”Maria Anselmo
“Rachel gives a fantastic presentation! She easily engages the audience and provides excellent tips that deliver results. Her method of relating our own energy balance sheet to a bank balance was a great way to help everyone understand how stress drains us. Rachel delivers her message very well and creates a space of learning where everyone felt comfortable to engage and share.”Pamela Higgins
