The American anchor had the interest to pursue her career in journalism ever since her teenage years. She was inspired to be an anchor after participating in a speech class she had taken during her schooling at Cincinnati-area high school.

Although the salary was insufficient to meet her several requirements as a struggling graduate, she held on to the job for the sake of experience. Her perseverance and struggle during her time at the network paid off; as in 1993, she secured her next first job in a different TV network as an anchor.
Partly due to her previous experience in the significant station, she got hired as a producer in the same TV station located in Steubenville, Ohio.
