Early life[edit]

Bloomfield attended Massey High School in West Auckland, New Zealand.


Bloomfield has starred in Shortland Street continuously on and off for 24 years, transforming Rachel McKenna from the school girl daughter of clinic boss into a university student, a Shortland Street clinic employee and CEO of Shortland Street Hospital.

Bloomfield has also performed in a number of feature films including Bonjour Timothy and The Frighteners. She has also appeared in smaller TV shows such as The Adventures of the Black Stallion, Betty's Bunch, Ride with the Devil and Power Rangers Ninja Storm in small roles. Acting took a back seat for three years when she became a mother of two but she kept her hand in directing for Shortland Street. Bloomfield has also been a contestant on the N.Z show, Dancing with the Stars and was in 2006 voted as having New Zealand's best breasts.[1] Bloomfield returned to Shortland Street as Rachel in October 2009 as a series regular and then left Shortland Street once again in 2016.
