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

I am a program assistant at the International Center for Journalists and previously worked in northern Nevada as a bilingual  immigration reporter for KUNR Public Radio and Noticiero Móvil.

I am also the 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 state of California, 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.

In October 2017 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.
