"I love serving this community that means so much to me," she said. "This job is all about learning about the community and the world in which we live, meeting people, telling their stories, and providing information that makes a difference in people's lives."
Prior to coming to Denver, Ana was an anchor and reporter at KHQ-TV in Spokane, Wash. In Spokane, Ana's work was recognized with awards from Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) and Veterans of Foreign Wars organizations.
Ana earned her B.A. in communication from Washington State University and the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication. She also has a bachelor's degree in Spanish.
Throughout her career, Ana has been involved in her community. She currently serves on the Board of Directors of Mi Casa Resource Center in Denver, which is dedicated to advancing economic success and helping Latino and low-income families trade poverty for lasting economic stability. She serves as a station ambassador of the Go, Slow, Whoa program, which teaches children in local school districts about the importance of good nutrition and exercise. Ana also enjoys emceeing several nonprofit events throughout the year.
She has also served on the board of the American Cancer Society, volunteering weekly in the Rose Medical Center Cancer Resource Center. She is passionate about curing cancer, since her brother, John, a survivor, battled brain cancer at the age of 10.
When she's not working, Ana enjoys spending time with her new son, Jackson, husband, Ben, and her energetic golden retriever, Lola. She enjoys cheering on the Broncos, Rockies, Nuggets and Avalanche. Her other hobbies include hiking, skiing, playing family games, reading, cooking and running.
