Bio: Rae Leach
Rae is a dietetic intern from Auburn University who can’t wait to become a registered dietitian in just a few months. As a Cross Country and Track athlete at Troy University, she developed a passion for performance nutrition and helping others to fuel themselves well. Her dream is to use nutrition to build people’s self-confidence and to help them perform optimally in sport and in life. She believes that all foods can fit in a healthy diet, and that exercise, social support, and self-care are equally essential for good health.
When she’s not at an internship rotation, Rae loves spending time outside and with her family and friends, who call her their “Rae of Sunshine.” She’s an avid peloton cyclist, and loves cooking with her roommate and little sister, Anna, who is a freshman at Auburn. Rae is very involved at her church, the West Auburn campus of the Church of the Highlands, and says that her faith is her motivation behind using her life to help others.
