I got involved because I love movies and especially love movies about and from Latin America. I returned to Gainesville from Bogota, Colombia just before the 2013 GLFF and I was hooked.
Professionally, I am a award-winning international journalist with expertise in Latin America whose credentials include CNN, CBS, the Associated Press and more. I was lucky enough to get a Knight International Journalism Fellowship and a grant from Transparency International that made it possible for me to spend two years living in Bogota between 2011 and 2013.
Now I am Gainesville-based, working as a writer and editor and as a health insurance navigator with the Affordable Care Act. I love hiking, movies, reading, zumba and salsa dancing!
