As a news writer at House Blog, she has explored an array of topics, but most of her articles revolve around cleaning, home improvement, and design. Among these, her favorite niche is design, especially when it involves exploring the versatile uses of IKEA pieces. While working on the brand, she has found a special affinity for hacks and DIY projects, particularly those gaining popularity on TikTok. She brings four years of experience in academia and over ten years of experience as an occupational therapist to Alb Media. In 2020, amidst her thriving career, she embraced a new challenge during her pregnancy by transitioning into writing. She contributed to various small-scale health and psychology websites, soon becoming a regular contributor to Medical News Today. Additionally, she provided content for other notable online platforms, such as iGeeksBlog and MakeUseOf, as well as a mix of business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) health brands. Recognizing an irresistible opportunity, she expanded her portfolio by joining Alb Media in 2023 to write for Health and House Blog.


Rachel has a bachelor's degree in occupational therapy and a master's degree in childhood development and education.
