Serendipity 2018

FemTech Collective hosted the Women's Health Salon at Serendipity on October 26th and 27th at General Assembly in downtown San Francisco. We brought together 20+ speakers to connect with over 100 attendees for intimate salon-style sessions. Over the course of four sessions, we talked about self-care for busy founders and professionals, the future of family, public health and technology, and advancing the female focused health technology industry. 

Serendipity is a conference unlike any other, created to spark meaningful connections across industries and backgrounds. While FemTech Collective hosted the women's health portion of the conference, there were 9 other Serendipity sessions happening across downtown San Francisco, courtesy of the Guild, the main conference host. The Guild is a professional women's networking platform powered by A.I.

Rachel Gadiel


Health Coach

Rachel is a wellness expert and the founder of Bloom Rituals - a company dedicated to shining a light on mental health being an essential part of our happiness and well-being, and bringing the magic back into daily self-care practices. After a decade in the corporate world of advertising and marketing, Rachel found herself burned out and wildly out of alignment with what brought her joy and purpose. A shift in gears led to following her natural passion for health and wellness where she became a certified Health Coach, a trained Life Coach and a certified 200RYT yoga teacher. Her mission is focused on empowering busy women, burned out from the stress of modern life, to take better care of themselves with nourishing self-care rituals so they can bloom to their best self.

From working hands on with chronically ill patients to becoming a certified nutrition counselor to designing Stanford research experiments on the mind-body connection - she’s developed deep experience across the health space throughout her career. Now, Tara is founder & CEO of Rupa Health, an integrative health tech company that helps patients access top alternative healthcare providers in their area. (P.S.
