Tierra joined FOX 7 Austin in December 2018 as Good Day Austin's feature reporter. She's excited to highlight the fun people, places and events that make Austin such a unique city. Tierra is no stranger to Austin as she studied at The University of Texas, where she received a degree in journalism. She recently married her high school sweetheart and is thrilled to be back in Austin!
Tierra started her broadcasting career in Idaho where she lived for six months to help start a full-power TV station. After that, she moved to Lubbock and was the "Look Around Lubbock" lifestyle reporter at FOX 34 for two years. During her time in Lubbock she received the Lew Dee On-Air Personality of the Year Award, given to the on-air talent who has "a positive attitude, excellent communication skills, a personal connection with the audience and a real passion for the community and the broadcasting business."
Tierra loves shining a positive light on the community. In her free time, she enjoys traveling and being active and outdoors with her husband, family and friends. When she's not creating a new recipe in her own kitchen, she loves trying new cuisine and restaurants throughout Austin's vibrant food scene.
