More About Rachel
Born and raised in a Navy family, Rachel lived a childhood across the eastern seaboard of the United States. Her introduction to herbalism began at a young age, spending time in silence with nature in her various childhood homes.
She has a background in Visual Arts and Art History with a concentration in textiles, mixed media, photography, and writing. Fueled with inspiration, Rachel has spent time exploring ancient cultures and folk art traditions around the world. She’s lived and traveled throughout Europe, Northern Africa, and Australia.
Rachel eventually moved to Southern California to study herbal medicine hands-on in the Santa Monica Mountains. She found synchronicity in learning about plants through creative mediums such as drawing her favorite plant allies ~ learning their geography, history, and tradition whilst empowering people to honor and care for themselves in connection to the earth. Since graduating, Rachel has assisted The Gaia School of Healing in being a mentor for new students and organized as The Herb Sales Coordinator for her school’s The Land Fund. Rachel now lives with her Australian husband in Massachusetts.
