Beatriz was born and raised in Madrid, Spain but moved to Austin, Texas six years ago.
There, she graduated from St. Edward’s University where she obtained her degree in Communications with a focus in Broadcast Journalism. She moved to Wichita December 2013 to join our team as the new bilingual multimedia reporter for KDCU and KWCH. Even though she loves the snow, she misses the Austin heat.
Beatriz comes from a big family. She has two brothers, two sisters, and three Cavalier King Charles Spaniel dogs. Her favorite things are to travel and volunteer! Her love for service has taking her to Canada and Peru. She hopes in the future to visit more of South America and experience the rich culture in these countries.
Beatriz fell in love with journalism in college and knew she wanted to be part of the media the day she stepped into a newsroom. She has been able to experience the news market in Austin with KXAN and Univision, as well as the breaking news in the nation’s Capital with WTTG. She is excited to be part of this family and cannot wait to see where this journey will take her.
