She joined NBC’s White House unit in January after covering Capitol Hill for the network for a year, in which she contributed to the network’s coverage of the January 6th Committee hearings and aftermath of the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade.
She came to NBC's Washington, D.C. bureau in January 2022 from the network's San Diego affiliate where she reported on wildfires across Southern California, the recall effort against Gov. Gavin Newsom and reopening of the U.S.-Mexico border as part of the state’s pandemic recovery, among other stories.

She was an associate producer for FOX News Sunday in the network's Washington bureau before becoming a Florida-based network multimedia reporter. In that role, Raffa worked as a one-woman band to provide TV, print and radio coverage of a range of stories including historic hurricanes and floods, Florida International University's pedestrian bridge collapse, United Nations General Assemblies and the trial for drug kingpin Joaquin ‘El Chapo' Guzman, among others.
