LFW Spotlight: Rachelle Reinking

Have you ever wondered who the people behind Living Fort Wayne were? 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. Next in our series is our Editor, Rachelle Reinking!   What is your role within LFW and why did you decide to volunteer for our blog? – I’m the Editor and a contributing writer for Living Fort Wayne. I joined the LFW team because I love writing and, having lived in Fort Wayne my whole life, I wanted to help showcase the hidden gems our city has to offer.   Tell us one thing about your life outside of LFW. (Job, Family, pets, hobbies, etc). – I’m a pole dancing, meathead yogi. In my down time, I lift weights and pole dance at Fort Wayne Aerial. I’m a yoga teacher (I earned my 200 Hour RYT this past year!) and teach aerial yoga, power, and all levels at Studio Seva.   If you could live any other place in the world, beside FW, where would you live and why? – Either Salt Lake City, Utah or Dublin, Ireland. When I visited SLC, I couldn’t help but fall in love with the mountain scenery surrounding an urban city. Plus, the people had some Midwestern hospitality in them. I adored the culture in Dublin, and I am so intrigued by its rich history. Beautiful city in a beautiful country!   If you had a friend coming in from out of town, what is the one can’t miss thing you would show them or do with them in FW? – Oh man, so many things! I would make a couple days out of exploring Downtown Fort Wayne. Awesome coffee shops, fantastic locally owned restaurants, my go-to shop Black Anvil Tattoo, drop-in pole fitness class at Fort Wayne Aerial, fun music scene and nightlife – that’s a solid weekend in my book.   If you were going to karaoke tonight, what song would you sing? – Let it be known, I’m a singer by trade, and would probably sing multiple times well after you’re sick of seeing me go up on stage 😉 I love me some Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, and Lana Del Rey, but I’ll also willingly (read: shamelessly) sing anything from The Lion King soundtrack.   Stay tuned next month for another glimpse...
