BioCeuticals Integrative Medicine Awards_22.4.17_149

Psssssssssssst….just thought I would share a special moment from a couple of weeks ago when I received the BIMA for Lecturer of the Year.

Thanks to all those practitioners who nominated me for Lecturer, Nutritionist & Researcher of the year! It was really special to be acknowledged in this way for my role in education.  I am so grateful to have had the support of so many throughout my career – from my own exceptional teachers, Sue Evans, Assunta Hunter, Gill Stannard, Helen Margulies, Fay Paxton, and most influential of all, Dr. Tini Gruner, right through to all the fabulous practitioners that I have the privilege to mentor (and secretly learn from at the same time 😉 )

Huge congratulations to other well-deserving finalists and winners:

Mim Beim – Naturopath of the Year

Janet Schloss – Nutritionist & Researcher of the Year

And a snippet from the night in case you’re interested:

“Whether it’s writing weekly blogs, being a speaker at integrative medical conferences or co-founding the Australian Naturopathic Summit, Rachel sees every platform as an opportunity to improve the knowledge base of the naturopathic and integrative professional community as well as raise the standing of our profession by virtue of (hopefully!) being a worthy ambassador.”

Thank you :) 

And extra special thanks to Jamie and Artie for being there & for dancing behind the photographer to get me laughing so hard!
