I'm Rachel, a Northern California native, currently working and raising my family in the great town of Chico, Ca. My four children keep my life fun, crazy, active, sometimes stressful, but mostly?full of love. I am engaged to the most amazing man in the world, Quinn, and we are planning our wedding coming quickly this June 2014! We are a blended family, both of us divorced with children from previous marriages. Colin (10) is Quinn?s, and Jesse (9), Mylie 7), and Jett (4) are mine. Together we also have two four-legged children, Kookla (a 10 year old Chocolate Lab), and Murray (a 10 month old German short hair). Two years ago fate (and a little help from Match.com) brought our paths together, and life has never been better! I am blessed to have a wonderful career as an account executive for GOCOM media, where I spend my days helping businesses grow through television and digital advertising. It?s a rewarding career that I love, and it?s allowed me to meet some really amazing people.
I have a passion for life, and a big part of that is my passion for fitness. Shortly after Quinn and I started dating in the spring of 2012, he introduced me to the weight room at our gym. I had always thought of it as ?the room where the men go?. I had no desire to look like a man, so why would I want to lift weights? I have seen female body builders, (visualizing Arnold Schwarzenegger in a sports bra), and it was not for me! My fear and doubt turned quickly when I picked up a dumbbell and started to see my body change. What began to shape was a toned, athletic, and still very feminine body. Why hadn?t I discovered this before? I haven?t looked back since, and fitness is now a large part of who I am. It is a passion that Quinn and I share together, and a lifestyle that we raise our family in. I am even currently training for my first ever bodybuilding competition, bikini division, late this spring!
I am so thrilled that I have the opportunity to contribute to Moms Everyday. When women come together to support, motivate, and inspire each other?truly astonishing things can happen. I have been blessed with having some amazing mentors along my path, and It?s my hope that I can be one of those women for you in your own unique journey.
