“Hard work always pays off.”
Rachel always loved sports and from a very young age had her mind set on playing collegiate athletics. Along with her athletic experience, her Master’s Degree in Exercise Science with a concentration in Strength and Conditioning from Appalachian State University helped shape her into the coach she is today.
Originally from Seneca Falls, NY, Rachel began her athletic career playing soccer and excelled in 2 primary positions (Center Forward and Outside Midfield). Rachel played 4 years at Mars Hill University receiving a 2-year captains band, all conference, and Scholar Athlete of the Year recognition. Once her college playing years came to an end, Rachel’s focus shifted to gain more knowledge in sports performance, strength, and conditioning.
Before ULTIMATE ATHLETE, Rachel worked various internships and graduate assistantships in the sports performance industry, both in the private sector and high school athletic programs. Rachel has truly found her passion for sports performance, loving each moment and devoting her time to each athlete that walks in the door. She will not rest until each athlete’s goals are achieved.
“I am second. The athlete’s goals and pursuits will always come first.”
