At her heart, Serena is just a Florida girl who fell into politics and now calls D.C home.
She is the creator and host of Track the Vax, a weekly podcast by Everyday Health and MedPage Today focused on the race for a COVID-19 vaccine.; and an adjunct professor in the College of Journalism at the University of Florida.
As an award-winning broadcast news correspondent, she's covered the White House and Capitol Hill for ABC News as a correspondent; travelled globally reporting on U.S. immigration; and helped lead the team that broke the restoration of diplomatic ties between the U.S. and Cuba, which won the Merriam-Smith award for outstanding coverage.
During her time as a reporter/producer for ABC News, she was part of the breaking news team that won an Edward R. Murrow for their coverage of the Baltimore Riots, and a Peabody for their coverage of Superstorm Sandy: “The Perfect Storm.”
Serena holds a master's degree in Health Communication from the University of Florida and a bachelor's degree in Broadcast Journalism - News Reporting also from Florida.
She got her start in journalism working the medical beat for ABC News based in New York before moving to D.C. and working as a general assignment digital journalist, reporting and producing
for all ABC News shows and platforms including Good Morning America and World News with David Muir.
Raised in Florida, she trekked (aka dragged 😉)to the "north" with her naval officer husband.
In her free time she enjoys soaking up the snuggles from her daughter, any good DIY project, yoga, trying to 'run,' and practicing her Spanish.
