Coach Rachel Perry
Rachel Perry, also known as "Coach Perry", is a polymath, emerging writer, and (patent pending) inventor of educational games for parents and families. As a native of Connecticut, Rachel grew up across the street from the Mark Twain and Harriet Beecher Stowe House in Hartford. After serving over a decade in the U.S. Army as a military police woman, Civil, and Foreign service, she currently resides in Virginia Beach, where she volunteers for the City, and advocates for the rights of veterans, children and adult children of parental conflict.
Perry holds various self-directed Meetup events throughout the area. Her goal is to empower parents and caregivers to want to "win" 1st Place. Through her words, she hopes to create space for parents to envision and design; the life for their child, better than their own.
In January 2020, Perry completed 1:1 Parent Education and Coaching and Family Rules of Order through the non-profit 1st Place Kids Inc. She is currently seeking publication.
