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.
