The Trendsetter

Rachel Rudy


Hello Columbus! I'm Rachel. Your go-to for all things fashion, home, and hosting. I'm originally from Cleveland but after graduating from Ohio State (go Bucks!) in 2016, I quickly realized that Columbus had become home. I now spend my days working as the head of content marketing for a local craft brewer, and my nights shopping (maybe a tad too much) and sharing my passion for all things fashion, home, and food. Follow along at @RachelMRudy on Instagram + TikTok.
