Rachel Sanders is the Co-Founder and CEO of Rootine, a wellness company working to optimize its users’ health and daily performance with precision nutrition.
They enable individuals to leverage their personal health and nutrition data to improve how they look, feel and perform everyday with their test-take-track approach.
Rachel has spent her career in high-stress roles that require her to maximize the time she has — first as an investment banker and now as a startup founder and first-time mom.
Early on in her career she was suffering from burnout, fatigue, stress, and brain fog which hampered her ability to give her best every day. She turned to nutrition and fitness as a way to get more out of her day when sleep wasn’t always an option - constantly iterating on products, exercises, and ways to fuel her body to add performance gains throughout the day.
