WPLG Local 10 News
Miami, FL
Originally from New York City (Washington Heights) but Miami has been home since I was a freshman in high school.

I have a strong Dominican heritage and enjoys fusing my Hispanic background with the many cultures found in South Florida.

I have a passion for philanthropy -- working with several organizations both locally and nationally -- including the Wounded Warrior Project, Best Buddies, Susan G. Komen For The Cure, The Children's Miracle Network and Strong Women Strong Girls.

When I'm not in the newsroom you can find me running a charity 5K race, jumping obstacles at events like the Spartan Race, or exploring my adventurous side by sky diving!
