After her four years at Schreiner, she was able to dive into her career as soon as the Monday after graduation as an intern with Sports2Nite, a TV show based out of San Antonio, which airs every single day, 3 times a day. Riggs is currently employed as a Sports Reporter and Anchor for Sports2Nite.

When Riggs isn’t working a sporting event, she normally still finds her way to some sort of field or court, but when she does break away, she stays busy volunteering across the city and taking part in community runs or fitness events throughout San Antonio.
