When I created journeystrength the first question I asked myself was,

“HOW CAN MY JOURNEY HELP SOMEONE ELSE?”

 created to help you overcome limiting beliefs, increase your confidence, and build an empowering mindset for performance and training. i’ll share and guide you through all the mindset tools and skills i’ve learned on my journey where I went from doubting myself and my capabilities to becoming an Olympian that owned her confidence on the biggest sports stage.

This isn’t about GIVING you all the right answers but helping you find the answers within yourself, sharing relevant tools, resources, and mindset shifts that helped me along my journey, and being a source of great support and encouragement for you.

you are strong.
you are capable.
you are enough.

and I can’t wait to meet and connect with you!


FIND ME ON:

"best thing i ever did was believe in myself"

“Rachael is very relatable, her story and experiences are things that all athletes have gone though. She isn’t someone who is going to judge you or look down on you. You can be open and honest with her, she is a safe space. She’ll let you cry, laugh and make you have those ah-hah moments, those are probably my favorite. She’s more than just a mentor, she literally becomes someone you want to share progress with because it makes her just as happy.”

I UNDERSTAND,
I'VE BEEN THERE TOO...

 

2004

i accidentally stumbled upon volleyball entering my freshman year of high school. I had the physical potential but in that moment i began to believe the story that my skills weren’t enough and that i was behind compared to everyone else. that story and those beliefs stole my confidence.

2008

went to texas to play volleyball. i had talent but there was still a part of me that didn’t own my space so that i could move and play with full confidence.

2013

joined the usa women’s national volleyball team.

2015

had a coach ask me “why does it look like you don’t think you deserve to be out there on the court?” after a game — made me deep dive into what i was believing about myself and my capabilities and i dove into learning about the power of my mindset. 

i no longer wanted to be the only thing standing in my way.

i was playing small. 

i was doubting myself and my capabilities. 

i was my biggest critic.

it wasn’t until i tapped into the power of knowing and understanding my mindset that I was able to take up when I was competing and continuously be able to tap into my confidence.

it was all about tackling my limiting beliefs. letting go of perfectionism. embracing and viewing mistakes differentently. awareness of my body language and thoughts. and so much more

2016

For a year i honed in on my mindset skills was able to own my confidence and capabilities, and i was selected to the olympic team and became an Olympic medalist. I had the tools and mindset to feel confident and capable on the biggest sports stage in the world. 

I now you my journey and processes as a certified coach to help other female athletes do the same.

i love pens

I am a absolute pen snob

all pens are NOT created equal. and there are different pens required for different situations – we can discuss it more.
