In Atlanta, Vazquez worked as a programming assistant at WHTA radio.

After working for some time at the station, she decided to relocate to Washington, D.C., where she attended Howard University and studied Communications. While at Howard, she worked as a disc jockey at WHUR, the campus radio station.[2]

In 1999, she moved to Los Angeles, California, and went to work at KKBT radio. There, she was noticed by MTV and was invited to audition, although was not called back until a year after the audition.
