I am Natalie Van Hoozer, a journalist based in northern Nevada and a graduate of the University of Nevada, Reno, with BA degrees in journalism and Spanish.

I report in Spanish and English and work as a bilingual  immigration reporter for Reno Public Radio (KUNR) and Noticiero Movil.

I am also an ambassador in the United States for SembraMedia, an international nonprofit dedicated to supporting Spanish-language digital media natives.

Researching the current landscape of Spanish-English bilingual media in the United States, I recently compiled my findings from the last year into my Honors thesis at the UNR.

With grant funding from the International Center for Journalists, I created a multimedia project about Latina business owners in Reno, Nevada.

At the beginning of October I also reported at the Online News Association National Conference and profiled Spanish-language reporters.

In September 2016, I spoke at the ONA national conference on a panel titled Latinos and the 2016 Election: Reporting on Communities Regardless of Your Background.

For the spring of 2017, I studied in Madrid, Spain, and documented my travels on my blog, Nat Sounds.

I was previously the president  of the UNR Spanish Club and the UNR chapter of the Online News Association.
