Rachel Ryan joined the Newsplex in July 2010 as a producer/reporter. Originally from the great state of Ohio, Rachel attended Georgetown University, where she played on the varsity field hockey team.
During her time in D.C., Rachel interned with the media departments of the Washington Redskins and the Washington Wizards, and with FOX station WTTG in Washington, DC. Those experiences led her to the decision to pursue a career in journalism.
Rachel went back to school and got her master's degree from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University in January 2010. She has reported on everything from health care reform on Capitol Hill, to violence in Chicago public schools, to Georgetown's run in the NCAA Tournament.
In her free time, Rachel loves sports and traveling, and especially loves to blend the two, like the time she went running with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain.
Rachel is excited to explore Charlottesville and see all that it has to offer!
