My coaching style

I believe that nutrition is not a one-size-fits-all. We each have a unique set of preferences, desires, and goals that can only be achieved through a personal approach. When you work with me, your needs always come first. After all, this is your journey! I am here to listen, encourage, motivate, provide nutrition insights, and guide you through the challenges and adventures ahead. Your coaching sessions will be non-judgemental and you’ll get all the tools necessary to successfully meet your health and wellness goals. For the mama’s out there: While I was lucky enough to have breastfed both my boys, my ultimate belief is that fed is best. Your health is just as important as your child’s, whether you breastfeed, formula feed, or a combination of both. Your goals are my goals, and I’ll help you achieve them! I’m excited to take this journey with you!

I sought out a nutritionist after struggling for 8 years with debilitating muscle cramping while running 1/2 marathons and now more recently with long hikes in the Smoky Mountains. I have followed all of Rachel's recommendations and am thrilled to tell you that I have not had significant muscle cramps! Rachel has been a ray of sunshine in my fitness endeavors and I am so very thankful for her knowledge, professionalism and expertise. You can trust Top Nutrition Coaching to provide you with highly educated nutritionists to accomplish your nutrition goals.
