Title: Freelance Writer and Editor
Education: University of Pennsylvania, B.A. in sociology

Rachel Jacoby Zoldan is a native New Yorker who has been a writer and editor for over a decade, covering health, wellness, and beauty. She's written and edited for publications including Shape, SELF, Glamour, Allure, Teen Vogue, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, New York, Business of Fashion, Everyday Health, and Well+Good.

When she’s not writing, the mom of twin boys is usually playing referee to the duo, practicing yoga, or creating magic as a newly-minted certified crystal healer. Rachel lives in Westchester County with her husband, twin boys, and twin cats.

Always fascinated by human behavior, Rachel received her bachelor of arts degree in sociology from the University of Pennsylvania.

Rachel’s best health tip? Move every single day — even if it's just for five or 10 minutes — and do some yoga or stretching regularly while you’re at it. Exercise is the only thing that's helped her chronic pain, caused by being hunched over a computer writing and editing for the past 15 years!
