My name is Rachel Rivera and I’m a Dave Ramsey Certified Financial Coach.
I began my career working in adventurous and underserved locations such as the Hopi Native American Reservation and three Federal Prisons as a Clinical Pharmacist, commissioned by the United States Public Health Service (USPHS). This career path allowed me to touch the lives of so many Americans but also allowed me to deploy to Haiti in the aftermath of the 2010 hurricane that devastated that country. After retiring in 2013, I continued to practice pharmacy as a Professor and as a Pharmacist in Charge.
I am married to the most amazing husband, Andre, and pup-mom to my Reservation rescue dog, Grechen. While my husband was deployed to Iraq with the Army National Guard, I learned about Dave Ramsey’s Total Money Makeover and knew we could get out of debt too. We started applying the principles attacking the debt together. A year later, we hosted our first Financial Peace University class and relished in becoming debt free along with three other families during the 13-week class.
I’ve always been a teacher at heart. Whether it’s teaching patients how to accurately take their medications to improve their health, teaching students the nuances of clinical pharmacy, or showing folks how creating a budget makes you feel like you got a raise, I love to share what I've learned with anyone and everyone!
Enough about me though.
