Hi there! My name is Rachel, and I’m a Mom, Teacher, Blogger, Fitness Specialist, and Content Creator. As a Brand Ambassador for O, The Oprah Magazine, I am a strong advocate for living my best life, and because of that, I’m passionate about continually learning and growing as a person.
As a mom of three children, ages 22, 19, and 10, I like to share my trials and errors as a parent, which I also share as a contributor for the Today Parenting Team. As an educator for 18 years, I give some insight into what I’ve seen work in the classroom from both perspectives.
On a side note, I studied dance for more than 20 years and cheered for the Miami Dolphins for two years. Because of my dance experience, I transitioned into a fitness professional, working as a group fitness instructor and personal trainer for a decade. I have extensive knowledge in fitness and healthy living, especially since being diagnosed with hypothyroidism and gluten intolerance.
Blogging has given me an outlet to share my experiences and connect with other women (and men) who are trying to juggle it all. I have to say, it has been quite a rewarding and fulfilling experience!
I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Communications and Journalism from Florida State University and currently reside in Los Angeles with my husband, children, and 13-year old pug named Lucky.
