Rachael Yahne, author of HerAfter.com

My name is Rachael, I’m an award-winning blogger, writer, and cancer survivor, and this site was created to help women just like you fall back in love with your own life, no matter what struggles you’ve faced.

Her After is a site for women full of practical tips, useful articles, and enlightening how to guides to help women awaken to more fulfilling, beautiful lives. We discuss everything from career advice and finding purpose, to beauty tips and wellness news. It’s about helping you become your highest self, from the closet to the office to the place that matters most: in your own heart.

My Story

I was diagnosed with cancer with stage 4B Lymphoma at 17. I was treated with an experimental chemotherapy by a miracle worker named Dr. Wolin of Cedar Sinai Medical Center in LA. With my second chance at life, I moved to Seattle where I authored a blog of interviews showcasing local designers and artists. This blog was an affiliate for The Seattle Times, and won Metropolitan Fashion Week’s Fashion Blog of the Year Award.
At 21, I traveled to India to study yoga and meditation. I later relocated to LA, where I worked in fashion marketing before beginning this website. All these experiences helped to create the mission of HerAfter: to offer information that will help you become your best, not a second-rate version of someone else. I believe that in helping women create personal peace, it will create world peace.


Her After’s Story

Her After was created to help women live more beautiful lives after cancer; but a funny thing happened. As it turns out, the articles here reached more than just cancer survivors. Because we all have our own struggles. The struggle itself isn’t what’s most important. What’s important is that we honor our struggle, remember the lessons it taught us, and respect our power to heal, grow, evolve and succeed no matter what has happened to us. Her After is about encouraging and inspiring you to realize your power, your beauty, and that magic that is your life.

It’s about the big things that matter to the modern woman without forgetting to appreciate the little things. It’s about purpose, passion, the pursuit of beauty, style, living happily and healthily, and the questions we women ask daily in the face of both joy and hardship. Because a future in which all women feel empowered enough to be themselves no matter their circumstances, cherish each other as powerful beings, and realize their own potential will absolutely change the world.
