About our facilitator, Rachel Engstrom, M.S.W., C.H.E.S.
Rachel is a social services advocate that works in the mental health and substance abuse world. She has a master’s degree in social work and a health educational specialist certification. In 2011 when Rachel was 28, her husband Grayson was diagnosed with leukemia. Rachel was a caregiver, advocate, supporter, wife, cheerleader, and cancer world navigator for Grayson, until his death in 2013. She decided to take share her story with the world in her new book “Wife, Widow, Now What? How I Navigated the Cancer World and How You Can, Too,” through her own words, social media posts during her journey, and how-to guides for the patient, caregiver and supporters. Rachel greatly enjoys helping patients, caregivers/families find the right resources to meet their needs, as well as promoting self-care through practical and fun ways. Rachel loves spending time with her family, jigsaw puzzles, reading, writing, music, walks with her dog, tea and naps.
