As a native of Holland, Michigan, Rachel J. Weick grew up with a fondness for the Great Lakes region and a thirst for language and writing. She graduated from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois where she earned a Master of Science in Journalism with a concentration in Interactive Publishing.
Rachel also graduated with a B.A. in English, Language and Literature, and a Business Minor from Grand Valley State University. She has experience in business journalism, creative writing, and responsive web design.
She has an affinity for Michigan autumn storms, running, and a well-crafted Old Fashioned with rye whisky. When she is not writing, Rachel can often be found lost among the rows of bookshelves in a public library. Rachel and her husband currently live in West Michigan near the Lake Michigan shoreline.
