Rachel has always had an interest in health and has been competitive in a variety of sports growing up. For the past 6 years she has worked as an Emergency Nurse in Melbourne, seeing the very real impact that lifestyle choices have on the human body. Frustrated at the need for Australia to make a shift towards preventative medicine, she completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Human Nutrition at Deakin University in 2015. Rachel found CrossFit in 2013, eventually making the switch over to weightlifting in 2017, where she was the 58kg Victorian state champion and Australian national silver medallist. By tracking macronutrients she has been able to optimise her body composition to best suit her weight class and has improved her relationship with food by focusing on performance and recovery.
