Rachel earned her Masters of Science in physician assistant studies from Springfield College and is an Institute for Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner. Prior to joining the UltraWellness Center, Rachel worked for several years in emergency medicine at hospitals in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. She has also worked with a Functional Medicine practice providing online support and resources to clients.

Rachel became interested in Functional Medicine after working in the emergency room and realizing that they did not have a great system for treating chronic diseases. Preventing chronic diseases and health optimization became more interesting and fulfilling to Rachel and she felt she could help more patients that way.
