Rachel joined WINK News in October 2012. She comes back home to South Florida after spending two years in Texas.
Rachel was a general assignment news reporter, and later weekend anchor, at KAMC in Lubbock, Texas. While working in the "Hub City," she had the opportunity to report on everything from the Texas drought to Texas Tech athletics.
A graduate of the University of Miami, Rachel got her start in television as an Assignment Desk Editor at WSVN - Channel 7 in Miami, Florida. While in school, Rachel had the opportunity to intern with WCBS in New York City and WPLG in Miami.
Rachel was born in New Jersey, but grew up in Palm Beach County, just on the other side of Alligator Alley. She now lives in Naples where she reports on anything and everything happening in Collier County. When she's not working, you can probably find her at the beach. Rachel loves spending time with family and friends, cheering on her Miami Hurricanes, and watching her sister act and perform on stage.
