Rae was born and raised in Dundee, and read English at Edinburgh University, having failed to gain a place at music college; as a child she had wanted to be a singer. She left the university before her finals, and began work with D. C. Thomson newspapers in Dundee, Scotland before taking up work on BBC Radio Aberdeen. After three years there, she left to work in London around 1983 as an announcer and newsreader on BBC Radio 4. Later in the decade, she moved to daytime television co-presenting Open Air and continued with voiceover work when it ended. Susan Rae began working on the BBC World Service around 2000, returning to BBC Radio 4 in 2004.
She has done voice-overs for many Discovery Channel shows including Forensic Detectives, some episodes of The FBI Files and Street Crime UK for Bravo. In 2007, she presented Eastern Skies for Anglia Television.
Rae lives in Suffolk.
