Christmas came early for me this year in the form of Mackenzie - Rue's most recent team member and my new editorial assistant! Mackenzie's internship officially started today and wow can I already tell she's going to be my new lifesaver and a huge asset to the magazine.
I first met Mackenzie last July in NYC while she was interning at Jonathan Adler after a few email exchanges via our blogs. We bonded over fondue, talked about our love for Europe, and of course gabbed about all things design. In short...kindred souls and fast friends.
Then, I asked Mackenzie to do some writing for Rue Issue Two and she completely blew me away. Not only with her knack for words, but with her enthusiasm, professionalism, and speedy turnaround. As we grow, so does our need for a bigger team and I asked her if she'd be up for an internship at the mag and - thank you lucky stars - she said yes! So, please join me in welcoming Miss Mackenzie to Rue! (You're going to love her as much as I do!)
