Rachael applied for a summer job at Whole Foods Market because she loved grocery shopping and thought it would be a cool place to work while she went to school. She fell in love with her job and now she has a BA in Music and she is still with the company working on the Customer Information Team at the Global Headquarters in Austin, TX. She appreciates working at Whole Foods Market because she is always learning new and interesting things from her coworkers, and gets to combine her love of writing and food with her work. If you don’t find her trying a new recipe when she’s off the clock, then you’ll probably find her at a local swimming hole, practicing music, or working at her sewing machine.
