Rachel Schneider joined the 13abc team in May 2019 after graduating from the University of Toledo with a Bachelor of Arts in Media Communication and Legal Specialties.
Rachel grew up right across the border in Monroe, Michigan, so for her, “This is Home!”
While at UT, she produced content for UT:10 News, the university's nationally recognized student-produced newscast. She also worked on the ESPN live sports production crew for various Rocket football and basketball games. On the legal side, Rachel became interested in criminal law due to her mother’s career as a police detective and won several awards from the American Mock Trial Association during her time in high school and collegiate competitions.
Off-camera, Rachel loves performing on stage in local theatre productions and has studied acting at Jeff Daniel's Purple Rose Theatre Company. Her favorite past roles include Elle Woods in Legally Blonde and Cinderella in Into the Woods.
When she gets the chance, Rachel enjoys attending concerts, watching movies, and spending time outdoors with her family.
