She covered countless stories in Phoenix, including President Donald Trump’s first visit to Arizona and the death of late Senator John McCain.

Although Jennifer has put down some roots in Arizona – Jennifer is a proud Bostonian through and through! Go Patriots, Celtics, and Red Sox!

Jennifer’s love to tell stories is what led her to become a journalist. She began writing in a journal at a young age and always asked too many questions.

Jennifer is a proud Latina – her family is from Puerto Rico. ¡Sí, hablo español!

When Jennifer is not reporting the news you can find her hiking up a mountain, taking a yoga class, catching a flight somewhere, playing with her kitty Little Lola, dragging friends to brunch, and exploring her new city!
