What is your favorite color?
Gold, but red is my favorite "primary color"

What is your motto?
Family first and loyalty is everything.

What is your favorite thing about your career?
When I was 7 years old, my neighbor who is still the weather man at KENS5 in San Antonio took a group of us to the station. When I felt the energy and the buzz in the newsroom, I instantly fell in love. It was at that moment, that I knew I was going to be a "news lady." Fast forward 20 years later, I'm interviewing at ABC13 and I felt the same buzz, the same energy. All of a sudden, I was that 7-year-old girl falling in love all over again. I'm proud to be a part of such an amazing team filled with genuine and talented journalists.

Who are your idols?
Selena Quinantilla-Perez and Oprah

What do you always have to have with you?
Hairspray and red lipstick
