I am Rachel, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, who is committed to helping women and children achieve health and wellness through customized nutrition guidance. I approach each client as an individual and complete a thorough assessment to meet your needs. No cookie cutter advice here! I tailor my behavioral counseling sessions to address your body, your lifestyle, your food habits and beliefs, access to nutritious food, and your diverse cultural and ethnic practices. I combine science-based nutrition with your input to empower you to embark on a realistic nutrition journey. The result? Goal achievement. I teach a mindful eating approach to encourage sustainable and beneficial relationships with food. I get my energy through guiding you in creating a nourishing and fulfilling lifestyle.
My nutrition obsessions are reproductive health (fertility, pregnancy, perinatal), endocrinology and metabolism (your hormones and how your body works), the gut microbiome (fascinating), nutrigenomics (how what you eat influences your genes and how your genes influence your metabolism), integrative and functional nutrition (a holistic and personalized approach to health and healing), and all things pediatric (newborns through adolescents).
What else do I do? I volunteer my time to several organizations advocating for increased diversity, equity and inclusion in the nutrition space. I serve as the Massachusetts Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Diversity Liaison and State Professional Recruitment Coordinator (say that ten times fast). I love precepting dietetic interns; I learn as much from them as they learn from me! I take pictures of food which annoys everyone else at the table, reinvent traditional family meals with a nourishing twist, explore outdoor spaces, do yoga (badly), lift weights, and have epic dance parties (alone or otherwise). I am blessed with three beautiful children, and a supportive partner.
