Meet Rebecca (and family)
Welcome to The Lovely Blogger Girl! I am said blogger girl, Rebecca. I am a born and raised Chicagoian (aka, the suburbs of Chicago). After graduating from University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2004, I moved to New York City. I worked at Entertainment Weekly and InStyle, where I sat in my cubicle doing work, but also pestered the book editor on a daily basis for advanced copies of the newest books.
After working in NYC for three years, I moved back to Chicago because my mom kept crying when I left (true story). I then went on to work at a children’s book publishing company (PIL) keeping up with the likes of Dora, Minnie, and whatever Disney movie was being shown.
In 2012, I left PIL to write copy for a large Chicago ad agency (FCB) where I stayed for two-and-a-half years.
I now work as a content writer for an insurance company. My husband, Ryan, and I live in the suburbs of Chicago with our two little girls, Annie and Claire, plus our dog Harriet.
