Hi! I’m Rachel
I’m a former professional dancer turned Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. I’ve dedicated my career to supporting dancers in healing from dancer diet culture (ya know… those confusing messages telling you what’s “good” and what’s “bad” for performance?).
I’d love for you to join the thousands of dancers who work to implement my unique 6-step approach to fueling for performance in a way that builds a supportive relationship with both food and body.
Together, we’ll redefine what it means to be The Healthy Dancer®.
The Healthy Dancer® is for dancers who are ready to prioritize their nutrition and dismantle harmful food and body myths that ultimately limit performance potential.

Working with Rachel has been life-changing for me in recovery from my eating disorder and in healing my relationship with food!
Rachel is absolutely amazing! Not only has she taught me everything I know about nutrition, but she is THE BEST to work with; patient, compassionate, understanding, and non-judgmental.
Rachel’s expertise in diet and nutrition, coupled with her experience as a dancer, make The Healthy Dancer® the perfect resource for any dancer hoping to improve their relationship with food that will sustain their dancing and prevent injury. I am thrilled to have found Rachel and her resources for my daughter.
- Meal and snack guidance
- Sample meal plans
- Access to The Healthy Dancer® recipe index (100+ recipes)
- Member-exclusive digital cookbook (50+ recipes), including builders for:

- And more!
The Healthy Dancer® has increasingly changed the way I use food in my life to support my dancing and body. Not only has Rachel helped me to navigate my personal health needs, but she has also guided me in changing the way I approach fueling myself. In implementing what we have worked on, I am noticing a huge difference in my strength and endurance as a professional dancer.
Rachel is a true expert in the field. With so many unqualified individuals giving dancers nutrition “advice.” Prior to meeting Rachel, I participated in other health & wellness coaching programs set forth for dancers… but was left in a continued struggle in my relationship with food. Since joining The Healthy Dancer®, I’ve been able to maintain lasting shifts in both my behaviors and mindset.
I completed The Healthy Dancer® Summer Intensive with Rachel and it was an incredible experience! Rachel did an amazing job providing detailed workbooks, informative nutrition sessions, and an incredible lineup of dance-related workshops and masterclasses! I came away feeling more confident in my abilities to properly fuel my body for dance classes (and life in general!)
