What type(s) of holistic medicine or wellness have you studied and what do you specialize in?

Āyurveda and Yoga specializing in Chronic Lyme Disease and the coinfections

Tell us a little about you. What’s your backstory, and how did you get into holistic wellness?

My first job out of college was at a wildlife refuge (which I loved). Yet sitting in an office all day by myself wasn’t fulfilling. I went back to school for massage therapy. While searching for a way to offer deeper support to my massage therapy clients, I discovered Āyurveda.

I saw my first bullseye rash (a certain indicator of Lyme Disease) on my own leg in 2003. I went on to study Āyurveda in New Mexico at the Āyurvedic Institute.

After graduating, I had symptoms of ulcerative colitis and a severe heart condition. I searched for relief everywhere and tried many healing modalities only to return to my roots of Āyurveda and Yoga to find healing.

What’s your preferred style of work?

I’m a teacher and 1:1 health coach. I offer bespoke support in my 6-month, at-home, root-cause Lyme healing programs that address digestion, exhaustion, and cognitive issues and more.

What is something you’re most proud of in your work?

I’m proud of my ability to offer compassion to other people living with chronic illness. I’m proud of my ability to synthesize complicated Āyurvedic knowledge into easily accessible wisdom relevant to living with chronic illness without over-simplifying.

Where do you get most of your health info from (outside of your traditional study). Are there any podcasts you love, books you’d recommend, or newsletters you enjoy getting?

Where do you meet most of your clients?

Referrals from clients or people that I know

If you could give one piece of advice to a new holistic practitioner, what would it be?

Follow your heart & keep working on yourself

Where can people find you?

Hi, I'm Rachel.
Your Biz Bff + New Marketing Team.

I've been you. After graduating from business school and working at a digital agency, I left the 9-5 grind and went *all in* on studying Ayurveda, Yoga, Holistic Nutrition, and Reiki. I co-built a wellness brand for 3 years until I realized my magic isn't in being a practitioner, but in being the bestie, marketing team, and hype woman behind the scenes.
