More About Rachel Brown

Rachel wanted to be a Registered Dietitian since she was in high school. Growing up, she experienced many of her family members struggling with conditions that required nutrition education and support. Her father was diagnosed with a later stage cancer when she first started middle school and her grandparents all were diagnosed with chronic diseases including diabetes, stroke, and obesity. She was determined to be part of the medical field to help people like her own family and believed that nutrition was the key to treating the cause of many diseases.

Rachel grew up in Maryland through high school and then moved to Virginia and New Hampshire to complete her education in Dietetics. When she was ready to sit for the dietitian credentialing exam, she moved back to Maryland to become a practitioner in her home state.

Rachel is a health enthusiast and embraces the importance of good nutrition and physical activity in her own life. She likes to go on long runs, lift weights at the gym, and create new, healthy meals. However, most of her free time is spent hanging out with her dog Dennis and watching movies.
