Gabriela Garcia became a part of the CBS19 news team in May 2017.

Gabriela was born in Whittier California just outside of Los Angeles.

A few months after she was born, Gabriela and her family moved to Houston, and she lived there with her family until joining CBS19.

As a young girl, Gabriela enjoyed watching the news, and even "interviewing" her friends and teachers at recess.

After attending grade school just outside of Houston, she became a proud Cougar, graduating with honors from the University of Houston-Main Campus with a B.A. in Journalism.

Now, Gabriela enjoys her time in Tyler, exploring her new home city whenever she can.
