Bridging Communities

I’m Natalie Van Hoozer, a bilingual English/Spanish journalist based in Washington, D.C.

I’m passionate about bridging the gap between Spanish and English-language communities in the U.S. and beyond. I work as a program assistant at the International Center for Journalists and am the U.S. ambassador for SembraMedia, a media nonprofit dedicated to empowering Spanish-language digital media entrepreneurs. I also volunteer with ONA DC, my local chapter of the Online News Association.

I earned degrees in journalism and Spanish from the University of Nevada, Reno. During my time in Reno I worked as a reporter for National Public Radio member station KUNR Public Radio and Noticiero Móvil, UNR’s bilingual student news outlet. Some of my projects included stories focused on the local day labor community, Latina business owners in Reno and stories about local immigration and politics.

For my undergraduate thesis, I researched the landscape of bilingual Spanish-English reporting in the state of California.
