Gae has always been passionate about nutrition and fitness. She spent many years working in a physical therapy office and an athletic club where she learned the latest and greatest information on health.
Gae's journey into alternative medicine began a few years ago when she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. She was surprised when she became ill because she had faithfully followed all the advice from the experts. Traditional doctors tried to help, but finally said there was nothing more they could do. This is when she discovered Functional Medicine and all that it had to offer. It has turned her life around!
As the Director of Operations at the Healing Collective, Gae strives to create a positive, nurturing, and happy environment. She will answer your questions about the practice, help you set up appointments, and promote efficiency in the office to respect you and your time.
When she's not at the office, Gae enjoys playing African drums and practicing Tai Chi.
For 10 years Raechel worked in dermatology as a Medical Assistant. She was passionate about it, but when she began having thyroid problems, developing food intolerances, had little to no energy, and developed anxiety and depression, she lost her drive and needed to seek help.
She took her health into her own hands. Raechel saw a Functional Medicine practitioner because she wanted to get to the root cause of what was happening. In-depth testing, different from the western medical approach, found that she had leaky gut, candida, adrenal fatigue, hormone problems, mold, and Hashimoto's thyroiditis.
Through treatment, complete diet change, and patience Raechel began to heal and feel better. Because of this experience, she found her passion again through nutrition. Raechel is excited to work within Functional Medicine by helping with the process of patient journeys to get to the root cause of their problems.
In Raechel's free time, she enjoys hiking, kayaking, travel, and reading.
