Rachael Abrams

Rachael Abrams lives to eat and love. After stints at D MagazineTexas Monthly and Saveur, our energetic Texas Longhorn moved to New York City to attend culinary school and working in the Bon Appétit test kitchen. She returned to Dallas as the assistant editor at PaperCity, where she wrote about lifestyle topics such as food, fashion and society. While covering social events, Rachael became so inspired by Dallas philanthropists that she started her own charity — the Young Jewish Altruist Movement — with the mission of giving back to the community at large. As the associate editor at CultureMap, Rachael immersed herself in Dallas society and everything else that makes her heart beat fast. Now, as a teacher at the Yavneh Academy of Dallas, she is following her dream of coaching the next generation of journalists.
