After receiving a BA in Psychology from Boston University, an MBA from Georgetown University and working for companies including UBS, Levi Strauss and Co., Starbucks, and Barclays Global Investors, Rachel was rear-ended in a 2007 car accident that opened her eyes to the importance of incorporating sustainable, long-term health and fitness activities into one’s life. She discovered that her 7 previous years of Pilates and fitness experience were a foundation on which to build her skills as a knowledgeable and dedicated instructor and motivator with the expertise to effectively train a variety of clients, both injured and fully functional. She began her teacher training in Los Angeles in early 2008 and was certified through the prestigious Body Arts and Science International (BASI) comprehensive Pilates teacher training program at the start of 2009.

She currently creates corporate wellness programs and individualized health and nutrition strategic plans in the greater Portland, OR area; she previously trained and taught in Pacific Palisades and West Hollywood, CA. Rachel has local as well as national clients, including instructing at Nike World Headquarters campus in Portland, OR. As of November, 2013, Rachel is in New York! She is thrilled to bring her unique and innovative programming to the big apple!
Rachel is also a Certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Nutritionist through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). She has a wealth of experience helping individuals and companies / organizations to incorporate healthy habits into daily life.
