Featuring Rachel Fanucci
Recent Albany State University graduate, Rachel Fanucci, has her Georgia Teaching Certificate and fantastic job as Pre-K teacher. The 26-year-old said, “This is a dream come true job; teaching is my favorite thing to do!”
“I wanted to be healthy in my adult years—to be able to go to any store and buy any clothes in any style and wanted to accomplish personal goals like running a 5K. I reached out to Dr. Harold Kent at Georgia Coast Surgical, and here I am today.”
In 2015, Rachel began her journey with the medical staff at Georgia Coast Surgical. She credits her parents, Lori and Robert Fanucci, for their support. Then, at 5 feet 2.5 inches tall, she weighed 256 pounds with a body mass index of 46. She has since lost 143 pounds, closing in on her ideal body weight.
