I am Bianca, an award-winning inquisitive storyteller who not only wants to educate the masses but also feels a social responsibility to leave my community better than I found it. I specialize in broadcast reporting and video storytelling. Who wants to look back at their life and say, 'should've, could've, would've'? I sure don't. As a 2009 Teach for America corp member, I taught 6th-grade mathematics for six years in urban charter schools. I decided to return to an original passion and become a catalyst of change by telling the stories of those misrepresented or ignored by mainstream media. Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism allowed me to work under strict constraints, create content for various platforms, and communicate ideas to the public in a concise fashion. As a chosen candidate for the third-semester documentary program, I am a co-producer along with Lani Chan of a documentary entitled Somm State of Mind. The film is about the dynamic sommelier industry and the lifestyle balance women must endure in order to climb the ranks. Our film debuted at Columbia University's DocFest in December 2016 and was chosen for Sonoma International Film Festival 2017 in April. During my time at WDB7, a CBS affiliate in Roanoke, Virginia I worked as a dayside and morning reporter. I covered events such a President’s Trump commencement speech at Liberty University to the violent rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. Currently, I am a weekend anchor and morning reporter for KLAS, a CBS affiliate in Las Vegas, Nevada. In this role I cover a variety of topics such as breaking news, Las Vegas entertainment, crime, and education. Over the past two years, I contributed long-form stories to our Veterans Day Special, Hidden History Black History Special, and Breaking Down Barriers Special. I won a 2020 Pacific Southwest Emmy Award for the News Special Category. When I'm not at work I'm can be found at the gym, hosting an event, volunteering with Junior League, or just having laughs with friends over a cocktail.
