Upon matriculation, she enrolled into the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, from which she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism in 2001, then furthered her education at the University of Southern California (USC)’s Keck School of Medicine and earned her Master degree in MPH, Public Health and Communication Track in 2005. Liberté also obtained a certificate in Broadcast Journalism from the UCLA, as well as a certificate in Meteorology from Mississippi State University.
Following her outstanding academic performance, in 2003 Liberté was employed in the position of a news writer by the KTLA-5 Network, based in Los Angeles. During her stint there, she had an opportunity to work for the program entitled “News At 10”, hosted by Harold ‘Hal’ Fisher, one of the most famous late-night news anchors, which contributed to her net worth.
Rise to Fame
After gaining knowledge and experience in the news industry, Liberté left KTLA-5 to join the KCOY-TV Network, affiliated to CBS and based in Santa Barbara County, which was later renamed to KKFX-TV after the Fox network took over ownership. She worked there in the position of a general assignment reporter for two years, between 2006 and 2008, adding a considerable amount to her net worth.
Bright and talented, Liberté distinguished herself as a reporter, so she was soon noticed by NBC, which offered her work as a weekday morning news anchor at the affiliate KMIR. She spent two years in that position, until she decided to return to the KTLA-5 Network, where she began pursuing her dream job as a weathercaster and meteorologist in 2010. She still works there, so her net worth certainly continues to rise.
Fashion and Lifestyle Blog

She also promotes fitness and yoga, and her popularity has increased numbers of blog traffic. Moreover, she launched her own clothing line, named “Sweat With Soul”, raising further her wealth.
As time passed, Liberte caught the attention of the public partly due to her unique dresses. In 2016, she had a small incident as she was interrupted during her live forecast by her colleague, who passed her a sweater to put on and cover up her arms. She was a bit confused because he told her that they were getting a lot of negative emails due to her choice of clothing. The video went viral, after which was launched the hashtag #sweatergate. In the end, it turned out that it was just a joke.
