Even during her tender years, Rachael showed great promise. Growing up in Forest Hills, she was an honors student with an affinity for music and dance, playing classical piano and taking ballet classes. Upon graduating from Yeshiva University’s Stern College for Women where she majored in biology, Rachael achieved success as manager of a real estate office and teacher. She then received a degree in forensic psychology from John Jay College of Criminal Justice and another master’s degree and a PhD in developmental and clinical psychology from the prestigious Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, with a health emphasis. With her dance training and as the daughter of a holistic therapist mother, Rachael advocated the holistic approach of psychological support; that sound nutrition and not over-exercising are key components to successful weight loss, particularly for individuals who crave sugar or have difficulty losing weight.
That formula brought her to having her own office in Cedarhurst, an office in Life Gym as their new nutritional counselor in-house, and an office in Manhattan.
