Silva is a veteran of print journalism since 2005, having served Central Texas, Laredo, Corpus Christi and the Valley as an editor and reporter. In 2004 Silva earned a bachelor's degree in mass communications from Texas State University-San Marcos.
Most of Silva’s career has been spent in Laredo at the Laredo Morning Times, where she served in several roles in her seven years, including reporter, city editor and managing editor. She said she feels that border town life opened her eyes to the wide range of stories waiting to be told, whether it is breaking news, enterprise reports or features on the people that make up the color of a community.
