Overall RatingThis provider does not have ratings. Learn why
A provider may not have star ratings accompanying his/her website profile for one or more of the following reasons:
- Insufficient number of surveys - The provider has not yet reached the required minimum number of returned patient satisfaction surveys. We require a minimum of 30 surveys on an individual provider before displaying scores to ensure we have an adequate and representative sampling of patient feedback.

- Provider does not yet participate in the star rating program.
Ever since she was young, Rachel has been fascinated by medicine and passionate about caring for the sick. “As a young hospice volunteer, I found that providing care for patients and their families was very meaningful and fulfilling,” she explains. “I knew that becoming an advanced practitioner would be the right career for me, because I find the work fascinating and it allows me to help others. As an advanced practitioner, I can give patients the tools that they need to reach their healthcare goals.”
Rachel began her career as a registered nurse before becoming an advanced practitioner. “I picked Family Practice as my specialty, because it allows me to help a population with a diverse set of needs,” she explains. “In Family Practice I can also focus on preventative care with my patients. Being a family nurse practitioner, allows me to practice as a generalist and to specialize in the areas that I find most interesting.”
In her practice, Rachel likes to connect closely with her patients and is a strong believer in providing patient-centered care. “I strive to meet the needs of my patients. I use evidence-based practice to achieve safe and effective care. What I like most about my job is helping my patients improve their quality of life by working with them to create individualized care plans.”
In her spare time, Rachel enjoys growing plants, baking, hiking, camping, and traveling with her husband.
