Rachael Beard, RN, M.Ed.

Currently working as a the Health Education program coordinator for the St. Louis Veterans Health Administration. I enjoy blending my clinical and education experiences to help patients, families, and staff improve their health. I also work closely with projects in the medical center focused on patient safety, health literacy, and nursing research. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and participating in healthy activities at the local YMCA. I also volunteer as a gymnastics and cheerleading coach and I am leading the new cheer program at Lindenwood University- Belleville. I am married to Jared Beard and we have a three year old named Cole and a English bulldog named Walter. My favorite form of exercise is participating in triathlons and lifting weights and my favorite healthy snack is raw veggies and low fat dip.
