- Accepting Patients:
"“I am aware of how challenging it can be to juggle family, work, and medical needs. I also know how hard it can be to make healthy lifestyle changes, like eating well, exercising, and quitting smoking. I hope to help you with your medical needs, as well as help you to make healthy choices that will keep you and your family well.”"
Rachael enjoys caring for patients of all ages, building long-lasting relationships with families, and promoting healthy lifestyle choices. For example, she has collaborated with local farmers to bring a fresh produce stand to the clinic in order to promote and increase access to healthy food choices. Her doctoral work involved health literacy interventions at Richmond, efforts that have helped the clinic staff to improve how they communicate with patients. When not caring for her patients she enjoys gardening, cooking, salsa dancing, volunteering, and spending time with her family.
