She received her BS in Communications with a concentration in Broadcast Journalism from Florida International University and earned the “Employee of the Year” award after her first year in the company. In 2005 she was entrusted with essential aspects of live events including premiere award shows “Premio Lo Nuestro”, “Latin Grammys”, and “Premios Juventud”, for which she was part of the original production team. Nathalia decided to shift her focus completely to journalism in 2006 where she covered events such as President Bush’s visit to Miami and issues regarding Cuban political affairs, local crime and politics.
