Sandra Garcia is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, where she studied journalism in the Moody College of Communications.
Born in El Paso, Texas, but raised in Raymondville here in the RGV, Sandra's connection to the border has and always will be a strong one. She is grateful to be able to share the Valley's stories with the community she loves, and is happy to be back. She is a proud Lasara ISD alumna.
Prior to joining the KGBT News Team, Sandra interned at KXAN-TV in Austin. She was also an intern at KVIA-TV in El Paso - where she first discovered her love for news the summer of 2017.
She also worked at the UT Austin Energy Institute, where she managed social media accounts and developed written content for their monthly newsletter.
Her passions include immigration reporting, covering Texas schools, and keeping people informed about social issues across the country.
Sandra loves to run and shop. If she's not doing that, she's probably watching Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
