Rhodes was educated at Weobley High School before taking A-levels in Communication Studies, English, General Studies and Psychology at Hereford Sixth Form College. She graduated in 1990 from Birmingham Polytechnic (now Birmingham City University), where she studied for a degree in media and communications (specialising in television).
Before coming to News 24, Rhodes was a freelancer, working across the BBC's radio stations. Her favourite sport is tennis, and her break in sports reporting/presenting came when she was at Wimbledon, presenting on the local radio service Radio Wimbledon. She has been covering the tournament since 1995.
In 2011, she took over as presenter of BBC West Midlands show Inside Out after the programme went through several guest presenters following the sacking of previous presenter Ashley Blake. Rhodes also became a reporter on Midlands Today alongside her Inside Out duties and, in 2012, she became the main presenter of Midlands Today when Suzanne Virdee left the programme.
