Rachel is thrilled to call Southern California home! After spending way too much time covering snowstorms and heat waves, she has finally found the perfect climate! She joined the 10News team in May 2009 as a general assignment reporter and fill-in anchor.
The Pittsburgh native moved to San Diego after spending five years anchoring and reporting in Detroit. She's also worked in the same capacity at stations in Northern Michigan, South Texas and the Mississippi Delta.
Some of her most memorable stories include covering the Santa Barbara wildfires, the Detroit mayoral scandal, the crash of a University of Michigan medical flight team, Hurricane Wilma and following the Tigers to the World Series.
Rachel loves the adventure of being a reporter and learning something new every day.
The Emmy-nominated journalist graduated from West Virginia University with a bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism and a minor in Spanish.
Rachel and her husband live in North County with their two dogs: a golden retriever and a miniature dachshund. Naturally, the wiener dog rules the house.
