Before WAVE, Rachael worked as a multimedia journalist covering southern Illinois for WPSD TV and as a multimedia journalist in Sioux City, Iowa. Before that, Rachael worked as a multimedia producer for WHO HD in Des Moines, Iowa.

Rachael grew up near the twin cities in Minnesota. She attended the school of journalism at the University of Minnesota. There she interned for the St. Paul Pioneer Press and for WCCO TV.

Rachael has a love for covering the community and telling people’s stories. She considers the ability to tell people’s stories each day a privilege and hopes to let people’s voices in the community be heard.
