Dannielle joined the KATC TV 3 News team in June 2017. She graduated from Loyola University New Orleans.
From when she was little, Garcia loved to tell stories so she took that passion and turned it into a career. She began as an intern for Telemundo Network in Miami and went on to intern at WDSU in New Orleans as well as ESPN in Connecticut.
During her time at Loyola, she was honored with various awards from the Associated Press and the Society of Professional Journalists. Garcia also anchored in daily live newscasts for the Loyola News Service and created a university podcast called “The Wolf of Loyno.”
She is originally from Miami with Cuban and Thai roots. Her diverse background, along with studying abroad in Spain, traveling all over the world and moving to new cities has opened her eyes to the different cultures and experiences that the earth has to offer. Although she was not born in Louisiana she says she was raised by the eccentric city that is New Orleans and is happy to call Lafayette her new home.
