Rachel has over 16 years of medical experience. She received her BSN from the University of Massachusetts Boston, graduating with honors. Rachel then worked as a Registered Nurse in many different areas, including pediatrics, critical care, ambulatory care and as a clinical instructor to student nurses. The majority of her career was spent working in Boston Children's Hospital on an infant/toddler surgical unit.
In 2016, Rachel received her MSN from Maryville University, graduating with honors and as a member of the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing. She received her Board Certification as a Family Nurse Practitioner from the ANCC. Soon after, she left Boston to pursue work with non-surgical pain relief options in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
Over the past four years, she has injected over 1,000 patients looking for relief from chronic pain. Rachel formed Marino Health & Wellness in 2019 so that she could take her knowledge and expertise to her local community in Southern NH. She believes strongly in the body's ability to heal itself, which is why all of our options are natural and minimally invasive.
Rachel has expanded her role and certifications to include multiple treatment options for anti-aging, hair loss, body fat reduction and nutritional deficiencies. We truly are a one stop shop for all your health and beauty needs!
As a Nurse Practitioner run clinic, there is a strong emphasis on listening to our clients, having compassion and a general desire to help others. Our team becomes invested in your journey as your success is our success.
Ken has been with us since day one, when we started in a small, one-room space. He believed in the vision and has been instrumental in making that vision come to life over the past two years!
Ken began his career in medicine in 2002 as an EMT and Emergency Room Technician. After receiving his Nursing Degree in 2005, he spent time working in a Level II Trauma Center in the Boston area. In 2012, he began working in peri-operative care, with an emphasis on orthopedic procedures (including joint replacement surgeries).
Wanting to help patients avoid these costly, painful and often debilitating surgeries, Ken began researching the benefits of nonsurgical, minimally invasive injection therapies. That led him to begin working with our Director, Rachel Marino, where he learned the amazing potential that therapies such as prolotherapy and PRP have for chronic pain patients, especially those with joint pain/arthritis.
As our Client Care Specialist, Ken is devoted to our patients and is known for his compassionate and personalized care that he provides to each and every one. When he's not at work, you'll find him busy doing home construction projects, or spending time with family and his beautiful German Shepard, Chara.
