I am passionate about reporting health, community and lifestyle news! I am currently the features and lifestyle reporter at FOX 7 Austin. I am live each weekday morning highlighting the people, places and events that make Austin a vibrant, unique city. I also host a weekly cooking segment, unofficially titled "Tierra's Pantry," that's live from my kitchen. I create the recipes that I share each week and often incorporate a "support local" aspect. I also work with Dell Children's Medical Center to share inspiring stories.
Prior to my move back to Austin in 2018, I was the "Look Around Lubbock" lifestyle reporter at FOX 34 in Lubbock. There I had a similar role, planning and reporting lively content each weekday morning. I was also the evening health anchor, reported uplifting stories from the local children's hospital and hosted a weekly cooking segment with a local dietitian.
I am an avid foodie & love to explore new places. I graduated from Moody College of Communication at The University of Texas in 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in journalism. I am honored to have been the recipient for The 2017 Lew Dee On-Air Personality of the Year Award at Ramar Communications. The award is given to the on-air person who most personifies qualities that Lew possessed, which include "positive attitude, excellent communication skills, a personal connection with the audience and a real passion for the community and the broadcasting business."
I love the outdoors and enjoy new adventures. I cherish time spent with my family, friends and husband! I carry myself with an optimistic attitude, willingness to learn and confident outlook.
