Rachel Butler-Green is a Health Entrepreneur based in Los Angeles, CA. As a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, she spent 10 years growing her business and working with leading physical therapists and chiropractors. At the age of 30, during the height of her career, Rachel suffered a rare stroke due to a brain hemorrhage called an Arterial Ventricular Malformation. She was left paralyzed unable to walk, see, or fend for herself.

Determined to get back to where she was, she spent the next few years of recovery remapping her brain and strengthening her body. Rachel leveraged her philosophy of “fit mind fit body” to create a new framework for her physical training company, while simultaneously learning how to build a startup in technology. She used her therapy dog for regular walking and emotional support, which led to the launch of Good Dog - a gamified dog walking app that rewards dog owners for giving their dogs proper walk times. 

Rachel’s overall mission is to help others create and maintain a well-balanced lifestyle with exercise and mindful living.
