Working in the medical field has been Rachel Chenoweth's dream since she was a young child. Growing up, she spent hours playing pretend clinic, using her dolls as patients that needed tending. Early in her professional career, working with other nurses inspired Rachel to become a doctor of nursing practice.
“After spending time with ill family members in the hospital and witnessing nurses at the bed side, I knew I wanted to be a nurse."
Rachel sees children and adolescents across a wide variety of diagnoses, including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, gender dysphoria, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and personality disorders.
“I always thought I would end up in general pediatrics, but found working as a nurse in my first job, I was drawn to helping adolescents go through their assessments for depression and anxiety in their well-child visits," she said.
Rachel earned her doctor of nursing practice degree from University of Wisconsin-Madison. In her free time she enjoys spending time with family, yoga, the outdoors and listening to music. Rachel and her husband have two children, both boys, and a rescue dog.
