LFW Member Spotlight – Rachel Stephens

Have you ever wondered who the people behind Living Fort Wayne are? Or maybe you’re curious about the different things our team does every day that make Living Fort Wayne the go-to destination for all the great things happening in our city. In this new spotlight series, we’ll be featuring a few of our amazing volunteers who will share a bit about their contributions to Living Fort Wayne and what they do outside of their volunteer work with us.

Today we are spotlighting Living Fort Wayne’s Managing Editor and Blogger, Rachel Stephens!

What is your role with Living Fort Wayne and why did you decide to volunteer with us?

I am the managing Editor and a blogger with Living Fort Wayne. I love writing and I love Northeast Indiana so volunteer for Living Fort Wayne seemed like a perfect fit.

Tell us one thing about your life outside of Living Fort Wayne.

I love to cook! When I am not working or writing I am surfing Pinterest and whipping up new recipes in the kitchen.

If you could live any place in the world, besides Fort Wayne, where would you live and why?

If I had to take up residence elsewhere, I would dream big and permanently live at the Four Seasons Resort in Bora Bora. While I have never been to Bora Bora, the idea of waking up in paradise next to the ocean everyday is enough to sell me.

If you had a friend come in from out of town, what is the one can’t miss thing you would show them or do with them in Fort Wayne?

If I had a friend come in the summertime, I would have to show them the YLNI Farmers Market on Barr Street. Strolling downtown, picking up local produce and ordering lunch from a food truck is the perfect Fort Wayne Saturday afternoon experience,

What is the most interesting place you’ve been in Fort Wayne that you don’t think many people know about?

Over the summer I had the chance to tour the Electric Works campus. I am sure by now everybody knows about this exciting project, but it was a cool experience to see the old GE campus and hear about its former operations and how that history will be preserved in its renovations.


If you were going to karaoke tonight, what song would you sing?

“Remix to Ignition.” No doubt about it.

Keep your eyes peeled for the next Spotlight with another one of Living Fort Wayne’s volunteers. If you’d like to learn more about opportunities to help out with our blog, send us an email at info@livingfortwayne.com or reach out to us on Twitter and Facebook.
We’re always interested in meeting with other folks who are passionate about sharing all that’s great about living, working and playing right here in Fort Wayne!
