Rachel Medefind

Rachel Medefind currently finds herself busily—or, perhaps more accurately, dizzyingly—engaged in the nurture of five young hearts, bodies and minds. For the past two years, she has taken on the role of educator, in addition to mothering, in a stimulating and demanding journey of learning alongside her children.

Rachel has a professional background in physical therapy and has worked extensively as a pregnancy center counselor. She lived from ages 5-18 in the Philippines, and continues to care deeply about global issues. She and her husband Jedd live in central California.
