Isabel joined Telemundo62 in February 2020. Her favorite part of being a reporter is getting to know the community and telling their stories.
“I’m very excited to be in Philadelphia and learn more about the city’s rich history, amazing people and delicious food,” said Isabel. “Having previously visited the area many times, I’m proud to call Philadelphia my new home.”

Fluent in Spanish, Isabel was born and raised in Maracaibo, Venezuela. During her time on Venezuelan television, Isabel covered major international events such as the death of former President Hugo Chavez and the deadly 2014 protests. She moved to the United States the following year in 2015 due to the difficult sociopolitical situation happening in her home country.

Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. While at Syracuse, she received the Gordon J. Alderman Memorial Prize for excellence in creative broadcasting.
