Tell us your story:  I’ve been working in television news for over 15 years and am grateful to be growing with the changes in this industry.  Laredo, Texas is my hometown and also the first place I got a TV job — Waco, Albuquerque, and West Palm Beach are also on my resume.  My addictions include Pilates, Yoga, and running, i.e. I’m a proud gym rat.  When I’m not at work, I’m spending time with my two young children and my wonderful husband.  My favorite vacation spot is the beach — ANY BEACH.  George R.R. Martin’s ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ series are my favorite books.
