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.
During her studies, Gaby took part in a couple of internships, one at a newer media company called Meeko TV, where she hosted a "One Minute News" segment along with weekly movie reviews.
After her time at Meeko TV, Gaby got the opportunity to intern for Houston Public Media, working with producers and talent on the local NPR station and on the local PBS show, Arts InSight.
Now, Gabriela enjoys her time in Tyler as a digital producer and Anchor, exploring her new home city whenever she can.
