Rachael is originally from York, NY, a small town south of Rochester. She had dreams of storm chasing after high school while she pursued a meteorology degree, so she headed to Iowa State University. In her four years there, she never once saw a tornado! Her first job brought her to KLKN-TV in Lincoln, Nebraska where she worked for 2 years doing weather and just about everything in the newsroom. She also spent time working in South Carolina and California. Her ultimate career goal was to end up back in lake effect country, which is what brings her to WUTR.
In her spare time, Rachael is an avid snowmobiler and spends her winters out on the trails all over Central NY. In the other 3 seasons, she loves to hunt, fish, golf and spend as much time as possible outdoors. She’s also learning how to sew and enjoys making some of her own clothing. Fun fact: she’s an identical twin born on her mother’s birthday!
