She holds a Masters in Journalism from the University of California, Berkeley and for the past two years has been working as a producer, video editor, and presenter at AJ+ Español from the San Francisco office.

Noelia’s reporting has taken her to exciting places such as Antarctica, Alaska, and several countries in South America.
She has worked for several media outlets in the United States and Uruguay, such as El Observador and Univision. She has been writing, shooting, producing and editing video, putting together multimedia packages, and presenting stories since she started studying journalism in Montevideo.

Project: The Guaraní Aquifer is the third largest freshwater reservoir in the planet and, in a world that’s running out of water, it has become a target: Governments and big corporations have set eyes on it. Noelia will travel to Paraguay to report on the current state of the aquifer and the risks it faces.
