Andrea Vazquez grew up always taking pictures as a kid and always enjoyed writing. But, it wasn’t until high school when she hit her head and had a mild concussion that she decided to change her career choice from nursing to photography. 

She joined the FOX21 News team in September 2022 as a video photographer. She most recently worked at KRDO in Colorado Springs as a bureau photographer and an assignment editor, and prior to that, she was a photographer at KVIA in her hometown of El Paso, TX. 

Andrea was born and raised in El Paso, Texas, and graduated from New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, with a degree in Journalism and Mass Communications and a minor in History. 

It was at NMSU that she joined the University News Team and fell in love with Broadcast Journalism.

When she is not carrying around her camera on her shoulder, Andrea enjoys painting, baking, welding, and pottery making.
