Prior to joining the team, she was an associate editor at Hour Detroit magazine. There, she wrote and edited stories for Hour Detroit’s Life & Style section as well as curated content for its daily e-newsletter. During her three years at the magazine, Rachael developed a passion for Detroit’s entrepreneurs and small businesses, and enjoyed reporting on the city’s fashion, retail, and arts industries. She looks forward to nurturing those interests in a new way at TechTown. Rachael earned her bachelor’s degree in fashion merchandising and design and a minor in journalism from Central Michigan University.
In her free time, Rachael loves searching for a colorfully printed dress or a pair of funky earrings to add to her wardrobe; grabbing a latte at one of her favorite local coffee shops; enjoying a meal with family and friends at one of Detroit’s amazing eateries; tending to her plant babies; and watching a good horror or thriller movie.
