Rachael Jumonville lives in Port-au-Prince, Haiti with her husband, Jason, her son, Lane, and daughter, Wren. They moved from College Station, TX in 2014 for Jason to work with Maxima, S.A. with a heart for job creation as a means to poverty alleviation. Through their time in Haiti, their desire for empowerment and education has strengthened. They are humbled at this opportunity to share in lifting up and empowering others through education.
Before moving to Haiti, Rachael worked in a cardiology clinic for 5 years and experienced close-up how nutrition can effect one’s health- for better or worse. This inspired her to pursue further education in nutrition. While living in Haiti, Rachael finished her Masters of Science in Nutrition through Texas Woman’s University, and she began looking for ways to serve this country she had come to love. Through nutrition seminars and conversations with those already in the medical field, she has witnessed a huge need in the area of nutrition education among all demographics in Haiti. Rachael has learned through her work and time here how complex and beautiful people are and that care for them should be intentional and integrative.
