Rachel resides in Atlanta with her husband and two young sons, ages 7 and 4. In 2009 Rachel's oldest son was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Prader-Willi Syndrome, with a diagnosis of autism to follow shortly after. The diagnosis was traumatic and forever altered the course of her life. Rachel has made it her mission to educate the world about children who have special needs and their parents. In her spare time between doctor’s appointments, therapy sessions, and the normal stuff everyday parents do, she writes a blog realfoodrealmom.wordpress.com.
Rachel is also a yoga teacher and a health coach in Atlanta. She is receiving her training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Her passion for food, nutrition and wellness are her biggest passion. You can find her on Facebook
or at her studio www.hazardcountyyoga.com. She assists her sister Jennifer (fellow Positively Positive contributor) on all retreats.
