Certified Master Nutrition Therapist
Digestive Health Specialist
How many times have you heard something like this from your doctor:
“Your labs are in range and look fine. There’s nothing wrong with you.”
Or “You have (fill in the blank). You’ll need to be on medication for the rest of your life.”
Or maybe you’ve been to doctor after doctor only to walk away with no answers and even more confusion.
If this sounds all too familiar, I want to work with you. I help people figure out the root cause of their dis-ease and guide them through a health protocol to restore their physical and emotional power.

“Rachel is amazing! The work with her is beyond nutrition – it is thinking about your lifestyle and learning self-care. The steps that we have taken to improve my nutrition have been easier than I imagined and incremental so that I could take them on. Her connections to resources to support your journey are equally life-changing and overall, she is just a lovely human. One of the best investments in myself I have made in a long time.”
“Rachel and The SHED Program have improved my life drastically. Rachel has spent the past four months helping me to get to the root causes of why I feel exhausted, frustrated, and burned out, not only physically but also emotionally. She uses lab work and her nutritional expertise to help build a plan to fuel your body in the right ways to help you reach your goals. Rachel gets to know her clients and spends time each week coaching us through the ins and outs of life. She has helped me to get out of my own way through coaching and calling me out on my excuses. I would highly recommend Rachel, The SHED, and More Than Weight Loss.”
