She graduated from a small high school in western Colorado and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in broadcast journalism from the University of Colorado. After a short stint as a newspaper reporter in a Denver suburb, Hood worked for both radio and television stations in Casper, Wyoming.

Hood's writing and reporting have earned a number of awards from professional organizations and associations, including an Emmy award in 2008 for coverage of the December 2007 ice storm.

Hood's concern for children and interest in parenting issues are evident in her community involvement on behalf of News On 6.
