In 1982, shortly after graduating from the Institute of Journalism in her native Dominican Republic, she emigrated to the United States to join her family and pursue a career in communications.
Her career in journalism took off in 1987 when, while working for an advertising agency, she was offered a position as a general assignment reporter with the New York City-based newspaper “Noticias del Mundo.” Shortly after being hired, she was promoted to Chief of the City Hall Bureau.
Two years later she embarked on a new challenge and accepted a position as Director of Public Affairs for WKDM 1380AM radio station. Her responsibilities included producing and hosting three weekly talk shows. She was also in charge of writing and scheduling the Public Service Announcements for the station, as well as attending and speaking at public events. After two successful years in WKDM, she joined the newscast of “Noticiero 47,” Telemundo’s local station in New York. While at “Noticiero 47,” she covered general news, special assignments and various human-interest stories. She also served as substitute anchor. In her current role as the National Correspondent of the New York Bureau of the Telemundo Network, she has produced and presented various special stories for the Network and its affiliates.
She is also the recipient of various awards for her work in several series and special programs. She received the Associated Press Award for the special series “Deseo a Ese Niño” and three ACE nominations, including best reporter. In 1990, The Governor of New York recognized her as an outstanding and influential communicator in the community. For three consecutive years, the Association of Dominican Broadcasters in New York City has honored her with the “El Pico de Oro Award.” She was also named one of Glamour magazine’s (Spanish Edition) most Distinguished and Influential Woman of the 1990s.
