Most Memorable Stories:  When I covered the disappearance and later, tragic death of a young Hasidic boy named Leiby Kletzky. The heroics of a community coming together to find him is something I'll never forget.

News Philosophy: Be accurate and be fair.

Role Model(s): My family, most notably my father, mother, sister and grandmother. There's also Christiane Amanpour and Ann Curry

Favorite Sports Team(s): Baseball! There wasn't a day during baseball season growing-up when there wasn't a game either playing on TV or on my grandfather's handheld radio.

Favorite Music: I love all types of music, but Salsa, old-school Spanish classics and Reggaeton are my favorite.

Favorite Book:  "The Wedding" by Nicholas Sparks. If you're a woman in need of an amazing love story, there you go. I am also enjoying "1421: The Year China Discovered the World"

Favorite Foods: Platanos maduros – I can eat them with eggs, I can eat them with rice and beans, and I can definitely eat them alone.

Family: I have an incredibly LARGE and CLOSE family and owe everything I have achieved to them.

Pet(s): No pets… yet.

My passion: Telling an excellent story and giving a voice to those who don't necessarily have one

Hobbies & Interests: I love outdoor activities. Right now, cycling, tennis and running are my three top picks. 

Hidden Talent(s): I am musically inclined and can play the drums. Most people are shocked when I say that. My favorites are Latin percussion instruments. I like to pretend I'm Sheila E on the timbales.

What I like best about Northeast Ohio:  Everyone has welcomed me with open arms.

You're most likely to see me around town at: a Cleveland Indians game, the West Side Market or in the Metroparks.  

On the weekends I love to: Get out and experience northeast Ohio.
