Whole Woman Health Founder, Integrative Health & Nutrition Life Coach
I’ve been described as the “chaos coordinator,” the”sound of reason,” a “food-freedom coach” and “the body whisperer”…and also unbelievably direct and loving in my approach.
Helping women who are trapped in a cycle of busyness, chaos, and overwhelm, yet want to lose weight and feel alive again is my passion.
I used to live a stressful life of constantly going & doing, yet never adding myself to my daily to-do list, so I know first-hand the effects that has on the mind and body. I was constantly sick, not feeding myself (or overfeeding myself), medicating with Chardonnay, and I lacked the energy to exercise, self-care, and dare I say, even laugh. It took me several years to heal my own body and soul, and then I made it my mission in life to help other women experiencing that existence.
If you are a woman who yo-yo diets but can’t find and maintain a healthy weight, who lives in a perpetual state of being on-the-go, if you’re looking at your diet as the solution (but know deep down its actually life that’s the culprit), I am your guide.
Your health is a byproduct of your life. If you’re ready to look deeply at root causes and do the work necessary to make sustainable change in order to reap the benefit of health & your desired body composition, then I’d like to work with you.
I am the Director of The SHED, a weight loss program for busy, professional women and mothers. A comprehensive 3-month weight loss program using nutrition science, coaching psychology, and functional lab testing to restore health, change habits, and create a personalized lifestyle that is realistic and effective with guaranteed results. The SHED is by far our most popular program for the woman who “wants it all”. Answers to her stalled weight, laboratory testing to design a customized playbook specific to her body’s needs, access to her nutritionist, behavioral coaching to change deeply ingrained habits, and a community that is supportive, kind, and intelligent. The SHED covers it all!
additionally, we offer the SHED Slim, a 1-month program for those who desire to experience the initial benefits of The SHED, lose weight and inches, identify food sensitivities, and receive support and accountability through coaching and community. And when you love your initial results, you are welcome to continue your progress by moving into one of The SHED 3-month programs.
No quick fixes here. This is the last “program” you’ll ever have to do to finally create abundant health and energy while maintaining your weight loss.
How many times have you heard something like this from your doctor:
“Your labs are in range and look fine. There’s nothing wrong with you.”
Or “You have (fill in the blank). You’ll need to be on medication for the rest of your life.”
Or maybe you’ve been to doctor after doctor only to walk away with no answers and even more confusion.
If this sounds all too familiar, I want to work with you. I help women figure out the root cause of their dis-ease and guide them through a health protocol to restore their physical and emotional power.
Sheila is a Master Nutrition Therapist and a Gut Sleuth® that helps health-minded individuals uncover the root cause of their ailments so they can find their happy energetic selves.

Sheila is the perfect practitioner for you if you have recently been diagnosed with a condition, need GI & digestive support, have or suspect an auto-immune condition, or suspect something is “off” with your health but no one has seemed to figure out what.
“Rachel is amazing! The work with her is beyond nutrition – it is thinking about your lifestyle and learning self-care. The steps that we have taken to improve my nutrition have been easier than I imagined and incremental so that I could take them on. Her connections to resources to support your journey are equally life-changing and overall, she is just a lovely human. One of the best investments in myself I have made in a long time.”
“Rachel and The SHED Program have improved my life drastically. Rachel has spent the past four months helping me to get to the root causes of why I feel exhausted, frustrated, and burned out, not only physically but also emotionally. She uses lab work and her nutritional expertise to help build a plan to fuel your body in the right ways to help you reach your goals. Rachel gets to know her clients and spends time each week coaching us through the ins and outs of life. She has helped me to get out of my own way through coaching and calling me out on my excuses. I would highly recommend Rachel, The SHED, and Whole Woman Health.”
