Professional Experience

Bilingual meteorologist, I joined the WINK News team in July 2020. I serve as a bilingual meteorologist at WINK News. I’m the chief meteorologist for Noticias WINK and Univision of SWFL on weekdays. Previously, I was the weekend meteorologist at WNCT in Greenville, NC, while in my senior year of college.

News Philosophy

Our job as meteorologists is to protect the people and property. We need to also protect as many people as possible and by being able to speak another language this skill saves more lives. Also during Hurricane season and in life stay ready so you don’t have to “get ready”

Hobbies, Interest & Community Involvement

When I am not at work I love exploring Florida especially the beaches. I am excited to get involved with the community and do school talks with children. I am an advocate for empowering women to become apart of the STEM field. I am an alumnus of the Zeta Tau Alpha Fraternity and I am very passionate about our philanthropy Breast Cancer Education and Awareness.

Education

Bachelor of Science in Meteorology, at North Carolina State University.
