"Since the age of 13, I always knew that I wanted to be a reporter," Beatriz said. "I remember sitting on the couch with my grandparents one afternoon watching Univision–the Spanish network and saying to myself 'that's what I want to do someday.' Fast forward a few years later, I am living that dream."
Beatriz's favorite part of her job is meeting new people everyday and sharing their stories. Whether they make you angry, cry or laugh, Beatriz strives to keep viewers informed.
When she's not working, Beatriz loves spending time at the gym, competing in triathlons and spending time with friends and family.
