It’s no coincidence Catalina broke into the entertainment industry in the city she loves. She’s a Jacksonville native, growing up in Orange Park and graduating from the University of North Florida. It was at UNF where Catalina turned her love for media, pop culture (mostly Beyonce) and conversation into something more. She interned at local radio station 97.9 KISSFM during her senior year. That small start has grown into Catalina hosting her own shows every weekend on KISSFM!

Outside the studio, Catalina loves to cook homemade meals and drink too much wine with her friends. She also enjoys the fact that you can never finish exploring Jacksonville! Keeping up with the city’s ever-evolving bar and food scene is a favorite hobby of hers.

Now going from behind the radio microphone to in front of the camera is an exciting transition. She is thrilled to sit with the ladies of The Chat and be the voice of the often misunderstood millenials.
