Before discovering her passion for therapeutic massage, Rachel was a casino dealer in Biloxi, MS, where she met a coworker that was also a student at the local massage school. Listening to her friend talk about her experiences with massage, Rachel became interested in knowing more. Her first massage was with a student at the local massage school. Immediately after her massage session she went straight to the Dean of Admissions and asked about enrollment for the next open semester.
Rachel graduated from Blue Cliff College (BCC) in Gulfport, MS valedictorian of her class. She immediately became the in-house clinic supervisor at BCC and started assisting instructors with classes such as sports, deep tissue, and neuromuscular therapy. Her favorite class to assist was kinesiology, the study of movement. Studying how the muscular body functions fascinates her and led to wanting to learn more with ongoing studies.
In Rachel’s personal time she enjoys life traveling and being adventurous with her partner and their two dogs.
