Vanessa Paz joins the KVAL news team from Chula Vista, a suburb area in San Diego.

She graduated from the California State University of Los Angeles with a degree in Broadcast Journalism.

While living in LA, she was fortunate enough to intern with both local and network news stations.

Some of her previous internships include Dateline NBC, KNBC and KNSD where she met many of her mentors who still give her advice today.

At Dateline NBC, she helped work on the Conrad Murray vs. The People trial in which she was credited as a Producer Assistant.

Her love for journalism came to light when she was a senior at Hilltop High School where she broadcasted for the daily news bulletin.

Her passions include exercise, travel, and tasting different foods.
A huge San Diego Chargers fan, she is slowly but surely adjusting to becoming a Ducks fan.

Excited for Oregon and the Eugene community, she would love to hear about any news stories or ideas.
