I am so excited you are here! Launched in 2015 as an informational site for women in midlife and perimenopause, SoulSpark Publication is a growing hub for women who are ready to take charge of their health and their lives. If you are a woman in her 30s, 40s, or 50s who has experienced anxiety, mood swings, insomnia, fatigue, or weight gain, you are in the right place! If your daily life revolves around your family, faith, and a long to-do list, pull up a chair. Here, you will find ways to re-center your soul, develop your gifts, and discover your inner inspiration.
At SoulSpark Publication, it is all about living out loud in midlife and beyond. That means healing the body and soul to be your most vibrant self. Think of it as sitting down for a cup of tea with a friend, sorting through some of the trouble spots, and creating a plan. It is a place to shed any notion of unworthiness and embrace a deep sense of purpose.
I’m Rachel, and you have stumbled onto my little piece of the world. I’m a country girl at heart. I spent my childhood climbing trees, riding horses, and milking goats. I am just as comfortable in a ball gown and sparkly shoes as riding breeches and tall boots. I love pencil drawing, watercolor painting, and spring. My life revolves around faith, family, and a large dose of laughter.
A few years back, I had lost some of those pieces of myself. After being dismissed by three different medical doctors about my symptoms, I had to set out on a journey of discovery, education, and research. Now five years later, I know that other women are still suffering the way I did and I want to share what I have learned. I help women understand the mechanisms of perimenopause and not end up feeling defeated or lost—because once a woman understands what is happening, she becomes equipped to work with it, rebalance her life, and rediscover her lost vitality.
My passion for education and research began at a young age and continued with me through college as I received my Bachelor of Science in biology with a chemistry minor. SoulSpark Publication has allowed me to combine that with my passion for writing and creativity. I love helping women discover the same truth I realized— how asking the right questions, listening to one’s body, and pursuing one’s passion makes midlife an absolutely amazing time in our lives.
Thank you for joining me on this journey!
