Communicator, writer, researcher
I am a higher education reporter for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. I identify issues and trends affecting the lives of college students. During 20 years in communications, I have monitored schools, state and local governments in search of news.
I routinely draw on my Spanish-speaking abilities to document trends unfolding in North Texas' Hispanic communities. My award-winning coverage of immigrants helped spotlight issues.
I was born in the former Canal Zone, Panama. I am the daughter of a former U.S. Air Force member and Panamanian teacher. I am a wife and mother who enjoys watching Little League baseball and high school cross country.
