She became news director of the station her junior year and held that title until she graduated. During her time with WEBN Rachel traveled to cover many events like the Oscars, Red Sox spring training, and the 2005 presidential inauguration.
After college Rachel accepted her first reporting job at WHBF-TV in Rock Island, Illinois. During her time there she enjoyed exploring the Midwest and meeting people from all different walks of life.
