Raechel graduated from Daemen College in 2012 with a bachelor of science degree and in 2014 with her Doctorate of Physical Therapy. She practiced for the last 5 years in New York City where she completed both her Certificate of Applied Functional Science and Fellowship of Applied Functional Science (FAFS) through the esteemed Gray Institute to better understand functional movement. During her time in NYC, Raechel gained significant experience both rehabbing and preventing injuries in endurance athletes (although she is also proficient in treating the upper extremities, low back, and neck as well as patients post operatively). In addition to completing her FAFS, Raechel has also taken many classes through the Postural Restoration Institute and has participated in Functional Soft Tissue Transformation courses taught by Lenny Parracino (head massage therapist for the LA Klippers) to improve her manual therapy skills. When she’s not treating patients, Raechel is an avid distance runner and enjoys traveling and spending time with her friends, family, and puppy.
