Kitty Alvarado joined the KMIR News team in January 2014.
She's a Southern California native who's been reporting Southern California's biggest stories for more than a decade.
Kitty says she's living her dream as a reporter.
Her career as a hair and makeup artist took a major turn after the attacks of September 11, 2001 when she realized life was too short not to follow her passion. Kitty says she puts her heart into every story she reports and is honored to be entrusted telling the stories of those living and working in the Coachella Valley.
