She also covered the Heaven's Gate tragedy from the station's helicopter 'Sky Ten.' She became the weekday morning weather anchor for KGTV from 1996 to 1999 while getting her undergrad at San Diego State University in Communications, Film and Political Science. Just before moving to Los Angeles, she added the entertainment beat to her resume at the ABC station covering press junkets and the red carpet pre-show for the Academy Awards from 1996 to 1999.
