She anchored and reported for KRWG-TV News22, a student-produced newscast that received recognition for its broadcasting excellence from the New Mexico Broadcasters Association. She also served as the Cultural Editor for the student newspaper, The Round Up, where she covered various campus stories. Her journalism journey took her to Charleston, S.C., where she interned at WCIV ABC News 4.
