I am an award-winning bilingual journalist based in Miami, working as part of Univision's first-ever English-language news section, Univision News.
My journalism career began in 2006 in Washington, D.C., covering Capitol Hill for a small newsletter company. After a stint reporting on education, I spent four years at a global media NGO, the International Center for Journalists.
In 2011 I bought a one-way ticket to South America to report through another language and lens, first from Buenos Aires, then from Bogotá. Over four years, I covered a range of stories for print and online publications including The New York Times, the Associated Press, Fast Company Magazine and Ms. Magazine.
I have also worked as an editor, translator and consultant for clients like The World Bank, the United Nations, Transparency International and Marca Colombia.
Upon my return to the U.S., I worked as a staff writer at the alt-weekly Miami New Times, covering all things Miami, from the encroaching seas to the Cuban exile community, and from local politics to historic preservation.
I am a two-time recipient of the International Women's Media Foundation (IWMF)'s Adelante fellowship, which allowed me to report from Chiapas, Mexico; and from El Salvador and Guatemala.
