Rikki comes to KGUN9 On Your Side straight from the U of A (BEAR DOWN!) where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism. But she's no stranger to news in Tucson.
Did you know?
Rikki's second love is dance, and she competed in high school, where her team took first place at the Nevada State Competition.
While in school, Rikki worked at the Arizona Daily Star as one of the NASA Space Grant interns, and reported for NPR News at Arizona Public Media. She also covered administration and science at the Arizona Daily Wildcat.
Rikki grew up in Las Vegas, but contrary to popular belief, did not grow up in a casino. While in high school, Rikki worked at the Las Vegas Review Journal and spent a summer at NASA Dryden Flight Research Center in California where she got to learn about cutting edge aerospace technology.
She is very excited to be reporting as a video journalist at KGUN9.
