I could not be more excited to have these two ladies on our Everest & Co. Team. When I started looking for interns for the fall, I knew two things I needed in someone - a great personality and a 'get shit done' mentality. I got so lucky that I ended up adding these two ladies instead of just one. I'd love for you to get to know these awesome girls that work so hard behind the scenes!
Hey friends! My name is Rachel, and I am so excited to be interning for Everest! (an internship that’s all about cute clothes? Count me in!) I’m working on the College Rep program as well as some graphic design, photography, and the blog! Since I’ll be blogging on here, I thought it might be good for us to get to know each other a little bit!
I am currently in school at Belmont University in Nashville where I am studying Art Education. It’s always been my dream to do something in the arts whether it be fashion, interior design, photography, or literally anything… but I also just really love kids! I loved my teachers and school growing up – I’m a nerd – and my goal is to love and influence my future kiddos as my amazing teachers did for me. I could go on.
Everest is basically my dream internship though; I get to do everything my crazy creative mind could ever think of! I’m originally from Knoxville, Tennessee, and loved growing up in the Smokies. Outside of school, I love hiking, my photography business, my involvement as a YoungLife leader, getting to be a camp counselor for Sky Ranch, participating in Delight Ministries, and volunteering with local schools’ art programs! And my friends and lots of food – those are good things too. Here are a few more fun facts about me:
- I am very passionate about dogs
- All I need is a cup of tea and a book
- I love the outdoors – the mountains are my happy place
- Nordstrom is also my happy place
- I know every word to all the Disney songs. Try me.
Born and raised in the farmlands of Wisconsin, how the hell did I end up in Nashville? Let’s rewind.
I’m from the north east part of Wisconsin, near Green Bay if you know where that is. If not, you may be familiar with a football team called the Green Bay Packers, if not, we can’t be friends. Anyway yeah, I live near them. My town is called Appleton, and before you ask, no, we don’t have a lot of apples. We pride ourselves on cheese and beer, which is fitting since 7 of the drunkest cities in America are in Wisconsin (Appleton being #3). I’m a Wisconsinite at heart, but let’s just say, I had to get out. So on to Nashville it was.
I decided to come to Belmont University as a Music Business major and a photography minor. Nashville is pretty dope if you ask me. I mean if you ignore the 90 degree weather with 80% humidity until well into October. Home of country music and hipsters, Nashville is honestly (I’m sorry this is so cliche) a big city with a small town feel.
Anyway enough about me and on to why you are reading this about me. I am one of the new interns for Everest & Company and I’m here to write some blog posts, take some pictures, and work on some social media posts.
Working for Everest has been amazing so far and I can’t wait to see where it leads me. It combines my love for fashion, photography, and social media (can you tell I’m a millennial lol). My girlies here are amazing and the clothes are so cute! I’m excited to be here, writing blog posts about my messy, crazy, life and sharing my love of clothing with you all. Thanks for having me on the Everest team and I can’t wait to see what’s next.
Show Kathleen @kschreibes_ and Rachel @rachelvandoren some love on Instagram!
