She also worked community news for the Las Vegas Sun.com during the Great Recession. She covered government for the daily Lahontan Valley News, which gave Becky her first experience of covering a national news topic, the Fallon Leukemia Cluster. This foundation eventually prepared her for the entertaining task of covering the Las Vegas Strip hotel industry for Forbes Travel Guide/Startle. While a master's student at UNLV, she was awarded a U.S. Fulbright grant to Romania, where she completed a project to develop a series of contemporary American literature workbooks to teach English communication skills. She presented on this project, “The Global, Creative ETA: Energizing Higher-Ed English Teaching,” at the 2016 Annual Fulbright Conference at George Washington University. The workbooks started as her service project while she was a Peace Corps volunteer in Ukraine (2012-2014) as part of the MFA Master’s International Writing Program at UNLV.
These workbooks incorporate communicative activities and group work for The Norton Anthology of Short Fiction, The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven, and The Great Gatsby.
