She graduated with a degree in meteorology from Iowa State University. She headed out to the Midwest in hopes of seeing a tornado in her four years there, but still to this day hasn't seen one in person. She started her career at KLKN in Lincoln, Nebraska. There, she covered numerous severe weather outbreaks and led team coverage in the field during winter storms. She has also spent time in South Carolina and California.
Rachael loves the outdoors. She's looking forward to getting her kayak in all the area lakes and rivers, and doing some snowshoeing in the winter. She's ran 4 half marathons and can't wait to run the Boilermaker. She enjoys playing video games, drinking coffee, watching home improvement shows on TV and even hopes to flip a house someday!
