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.
