Enterprising and curious, Luisa Alvarez spent time living in Spain. She was born in Colombia and is fluent in Spanish. Luisa credits knowing the language as the reason she was able to connect so well with her community in Madrid. It’s ultimately where her passion for people truly flourished and ignited her to pursue the art of storytelling.
Her love of journalism has taken her from Vancouver B.C. to Thunder Bay Ontario where she spent time as an anchor and reporter with Thunder Bay Television. After finding her footing in the industry there, she was thrilled for a chance to be back on the West Coast with CHEK. Luisa now covers the fast-growing West Shore communities of Greater Victoria, focusing on Langford, Colwood, View Royal and Sooke.
A BCIT graduate, Luisa is an award-winning journalist who loves telling personal stories, and digging to find the whole picture.
When she’s not running around town with a camera on her shoulder you’ll usually find her pampering her cat Archibald or hiking the islands beautiful trails.
