Throughout Rachel’s childhood she played goalie in soccer. She had many aches and pains due to the intensity of the rough sport. After many years of thinking, “It’s just pain...it’ll go away,” it never did, until she was introduced to chiropractic care. Shortly after seeing a chiropractor for regular adjustments, she noticed a huge change in her symptoms and overall health.

Rachel obtained her medical billing and coding certificate from Cal State University in Long Beach. After her own experience, she felt the need to work in the field of chiropractic to help others, and found her home at ET Chiropractic!
