Getting Healthcare Right

Rachel Kurtter

Rachel Kurtter

In the fall of 2017, I had the privilege of becoming a member of Highmark, Inc., joining the Clinical Care and Wellness team as a Registered Dietitian Wellness Coach.

My passion for healthy living was fostered by my family. As a child, they exposed me to the benefits of healthy cooking and the thrills of hiking, biking and running. As I grew older, I knew I wanted to pursue a career that enabled me to support and guide people on their journey to their best selves.

I have worked in the Pittsburgh community as a nutrition professional for the past 7 years, with roles ranging from clinical dietitian to research and development. I hold bachelor’s degrees from the University of Vermont in Sociology, and Montclair State University in Nutrition and Dietetics, and a master’s degree from the University of Pittsburgh in Wellness and Human Performance.
