Rachel wants you to know that the “studies” claiming that watching reality television makes you smarter are in fact true. When she isn’t at work she can be found hiking with her two dogs, practising yoga, or getting too emotionally invested in a container of vegan chocolate mousse. Rachel is a born and raised Vancouverite, which means that she loves the mountains and wears a lot of lululemon. She handles all of the Straight’s branded content needs but dabbles into editorial writing when she has the time. Rachel enjoys writing articles about local restaurants, dating, wine, fashion, beauty, and health.
