Rachel Geddis, MS, RDN

Dietitian

Qualifications: Registered Dietitian
Born: Jamestown, RI
Now Lives: Plymouth, MA

Professional background leading to career in health and wellness: 

I received my degree in Health Policy Administration. In many of my classes we discussed the problems with our healthcare system, and much of it had to do with the lack of preventative care.  After many discussions and assignments around this topic, I decided I wanted to be part of the solution more that I wanted to deal with the administrative side.

What reasons you are passionate about helping others: 

I just find it fascinating that by changing your lifestyle, you can greatly impact your health. I don’t think that this information is shared enough in healthcare because prescription drugs are an easier fix. I feel that it is really important for everyone to have this information in order to live their best life.

What do you enjoy in your free time:

I love spending time in new places, hiking, cooking and paddle boarding.  I also like reading about nutrition, and new research.
