Daniella is a Bonham native thrilled to be starting her journalism career in Texoma, and telling stories in the area where she grew up.
During her 11 years as a Fannin County resident, Daniella participated in 4-H and volunteered for organizations all over Texoma including Casa, the Fannin County Family Crisis Center, and the local American Red Cross chapter.
After graduating with an Associate's degree in Psychology from Grayson College, Daniella transferred to Southern Methodist University to get her Bachelor's in Journalism and minor in Spanish.
While at SMU she was very active in student media, often directing and anchoring The Daily Update, SMU's daily morning newscast. She was also the director of Punto-TV, SMU's first student run Spanish newscast.
Daniella interned in the news departments here at News 12 and at CBS 11 in Dallas before joining the KXII news team in January of 2014.
She loves meeting new people and telling their stories. If you have a story idea or news tip, or just want to say hello, she would love to hear from you! Email Daniella at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow her on Twitter: @RiveraDanie.
