She didn’t stay on the website for very long, though. In June 2017, she started a new position at CNN as a White House reporter.
Collins has broken multiple stories in her coverage of the Trump White House since she joined the network at the age of 25. She also went on assignment for Trump as chief White House correspondent in Asia.

Collins earns pay, a base wage, and bonuses because she is the chief White House correspondent. Her financial wealth is still being examined, though.
Her estimated net worth of more than $1 million is, however, widely conjectured online.
Will Douglas is married and in a relationship.
Will Douglas, a pharmacist and the owner of Crimson Care Pharmacy Group, was dating Collins. They reportedly began dating in 2015, and they publicized their romance on each other’s social media pages.
The couple took a wonderful trip in May 2016 with their close friends, and the following month they attended a wedding.
In July 2016, the two also visited the Nationals Park in Ballpark, Washington, D.C. In November 2016, they attended a wedding at Gin Creek Plantation.

It’s interesting to note that Collins was also close to her partner’s family, especially his mother Melinda Douglas and brother Tanner Pierce. They went on excursions and shared meals.
But their romance came to an end around 2017. Collins erased all of the photos of her and her partner from her Instagram account despite not disclosing their split.
She hasn’t discussed her romantic situation since then. Her commitment to her career is only hinted at on Twitter and Instagram.
