About Us: Rachel

I get to share my days at the office with a bunch of fitness and sports enthusiasts, making me one lucky girl. Not only am I surrounded by passionate co-workers, writers and readers from across the state of Michigan keep in touch to offer sports-related tips and stories for us to share in our magazine, on our website, and on our blog.

After graduating from the University of Michigan with degrees in English and Communication Studies, I was initially brought on as an intern for Outdoor Athlete and became Editor quickly thereafter. Working on the editorial staff for the magazine has been a perfect fit. Healthy eating and fitness are two of my loves and Outdoor Athlete gives me the opportunity to learn more about both. From interviewing a local raw foodist to writing about Michigan runners to participating in my first mountain bike race—the Iceman Cometh Slush Cup—it all happened because of Outdoor Athlete.

When not testing out athletic gear for product reviews or recapping the latest race with the Outdoor Athlete staff, I enjoy playing doubles tennis, running, horseback riding, and sampling the latest dishes and drinks around Ann Arbor. My short-term goal? Getting the office out for a bike brew or wine tour in Detroit or along Michigan’s coast.

Happy training,
