Background

Rachel Regenold, JD, RYT, LMT, opened Iowa Seeker Wellness in 2017. Rachel is a licensed attorney, Air Force veteran, and cancer survivor. Her unique background inspired her to delve into yoga and massage for self-care and ultimately led her to take a break from the practice of law after 12 years, 11 of which she spent as an attorney at the State Public Defender Office. Rachel is passionate about assisting others to ease chronic stress and fatigue with yoga and massage.
