Hey, I'm Stephanie!

Los Angeles, California

A native of Barranquilla, Colombia, Stephanie is a multimedia journalist and anchor in the Greater Los Angeles area. She previously worked as a reporter at WUVC (Univision 40) in Raleigh, NC, and anchored their 6:00 pm and 11:00 pm newscast two to three days per week. Stephanie also worked for Voice of America in Washington, DC, producing, editing, and reporting daily national news stories for TV and the web. Her daily tasks also included live TV news updates for international affiliates and reporting daily news feeds for two international radio stations. As a freelance reporter at WZDC Telemundo Washington for almost four years, she covered top stories ranging from controversial immigration issues to heated political topics brewing on Capitol Hill.

 

In 2014, Stephanie produced and directed a feature-length documentary called Uncensored: Narco Journalism. Through the lives of three Colombian journalists, the film recounts the peril journalists endured while covering Colombia’s narcoterrorism violence in the 1980s during the reign of Pablo Escobar’s Medellin cartel, throughout the 1990s during the rise of corruption in the military, and in the 2000s during a behind-closed-doors oppressive administration.

Stephanie graduated with a Masters of Professional Studies in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Maryland, College Park, in December 2014. She holds a Bachelor’s in Marketing with a minor in Electronic Journalism from George Mason University. She also attended the New York Film Academy for a Broadcast Journalism workshop, and is currently pursuing a Certificate in Documentary Studies at Duke University.
