As a traffic and weather reporter Rachel helps you navigate the traffic landscape so you can get there sooner.
A newbie to the team we stole Rachel from our sister company Beat the Traffic where she was a traffic presenter and gridlock specialist. Rachel joined the "family" in 2011 as a news writer but quickly showed her on camera affinity and broadcast prowess. Since the age of 12 Rachel has been telling friends and family she wanted to be a presenter and started volunteering at Rogers TV as a weather and field reporter.
Rachel holds an Honours BA in Broadcast Journalism from Wilfrid Laurier and a Videography degree from Conestoga College.
What does Rachel love about the weather?
I love the change of seasons. There is something magical as crisp red leaves turn into snowy branches then bud into spring and summer beauty. I love all the Canadian seasons, I think winter can overstay its welcome but it makes the warm spring air that much sweeter.
I also love how weather surrounds many Canadian conversations. We all feel the need to comment on the bitter cold, which sparks conversations with complete strangers. Weather gives us a platform to connect with people.
