Rebecca graduated with a journalism degree from Biola University in 2019 after working with her college newspaper as managing editor, news editor and features editor. She was also the editor-in-chief and web content editor for her college magazine. She interned as a photographer and social media manager with various non-profits to raise awareness on housing needs and helping to end human trafficking.

Outside of the news world, she likes shopping local, visiting state parks, watching movies and helping lead an online church group.
