Maria joined the KPTM FOX 42 news team in August 2015 as a multimedia journalist and is thrilled to have the chance to call Omaha her new home!

She is a recent graduate from Arizona State University's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication and worked as a Cronkite News reporter/anchor for KAET-PBS in Phoenix. In college, Maria wanted to explore every entity of the media industry and completed five internships in broadcast, print, radio, digital and public relations.

A San Diego native, she is new to the Midwest but is looking forward to experiencing her first "winter" in Nebraska. Off camera, Maria enjoys anything outdoors, traveling, singing and eating frozen yogurt.
