When I met Rachel, she was taking a break from her career as a hospice nurse to rediscover who she is and what she wants to do with the rest of her life.

She was majorly abused in every way imaginable as a kid. So, she had a lot of emotional and mental baggage from that. She grew up not thinking much of herself. Now, she was on a healing path and was feeling more beautiful in her own skin.

She was also finalizing a divorce from a 20-year marriage of ups and downs – a heroin addict, in and out of rehab and jail, not to mention infidelity. She only stayed with him because they had a son together. But now that their son was grown and on his own, she felt she could also move on. It was something she had wanted to do for a long time. She was ready to shine.

She was ready to feel comfortable in her own skin and finally start believing that she was enough.

She loves being around people who support her and who love her no matter what. She loves to laugh and smile. She wants to fulfill what she is supposed to fulfill in her life from this point on and not waste another minute.
