I began my career working as an intern for KABB-TV, the Fox affiliate in San Antonio, Texas while studying at the University of Texas at San Antonio -- Go Runners! I credit the foundation of my skills to my education at UTSA.

After graduation, I spent the next couple of years working in Houston, Texas. I started as a feature reporter and web editor for News92FM, the first all-news radio station on the FM dial in Houston. After my time at News92FM, I continued working as a web editor for KPRC Channel 2. While working there, I was surrounded by amazing journalists who were fulfilling their dreams, which encouraged me to do the same.

So, I packed my bags and moved to Abilene, Texas where I landed my first on-air job. This is where I truly grew into the journalist I am today. I produced, wrote, edited, reported and anchored for our all-Spanish newscast, Telemundo. After some time, I moved over to our English station, KRBC News, where I wore all the same hats. No one can put a price on the amount of experience I gained while working there. I truly loved getting to meet and understand people from all walks of life and sharing their stories.

I was born in Monterrey, Mexico but raised in Houston, Texas. However, I could not be more happy to be living in beautiful Austin, Texas! I consider myself blessed to report on such an important topic -- Austin traffic -- and being at the forefront of this evolving issue.

When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, running, traveling, reading everything from the Wall Street Journal to the latest issue of Vogue and meeting new people around town.
