In 2010, Pavlich earned a bachelor of arts degree in broadcast journalism from the University of Arizona. As an adult woman with eligible ancestry, she became a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
Pavlich moved to the Washington, D.C. area and became news editor for Townhall.com, a contributing editor to Townhall Magazine, and a Fox News contributor. In the summer of 2013, she became an alternate co-host for The Five, a panel talk show on the Fox News Channel. She is also a National Review Washington Fellow. Pavlich has appeared on many national and local radio shows on channels including Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, and Fox Business. Starting in 2018, she co-hosted the podcast "Everything’s Going to Be All Right" with former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
Pavlich was named the 2013 Blogger of the Year at the Conservative Political Action Conference for her coverage of the ATF gunwalking scandal, commonly referred to as the Fast and Furious scandal.
She has authored Fast and Furious: Barack Obama's Bloodiest Scandal and Its Shameless Cover-Up (2012) and Assault & Flattery: The Truth About the Left and Their War on Women (2014).
She was named the 2014 Woman of the Year and given the 2013 Conservative Leadership Award from the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute.
In August 2017, Pavlich was retweeted by President Trump. Her tweet incorrectly asserted that President Obama had pardoned Chelsea Manning and Oscar López Rivera, when Obama had, in fact, commuted their sentences.
