Brenda Yanez

I grew up in the snow covered mountains of AZ but have officially turned into a desert rat. When I visit my parents in the White Mountains they laugh at me wearing a sweatshirt in 75 degree weather!

After graduating from the University of Arizona a real job offer came from a local publishing company in Scottsdale and that's been my home for the past four years. Currently I'm living the dream at ASU's Walter Cronkite Master program. I also love the outdoors (you can find me hiking Camelback as soon as our winter begins) reading Jodi Picoult books, and traveling to lush beach places. Feel free to send me ideas for stories and/or projects while I take this journey through journalism boot camp!
