Hola everybody! My name is Zoraida Araceli Solis. The nickname that I go by is Chela. I am the associate producer for Coastal Living. I was born and raised in the great city of San Antonio, Texas. Go Spurs Go! I am a proud graduate of Sam Houston State University with a bachelor's degree in Arts and Media, and a minor in Spanish. Eat Em’ Up Kats!
I started my television career during the summer of 2019, where I interned for San Antonio Living with News 4 San Antonio. During my time with SA Living, I learned and fell in love with the lifestyle side of media. I am grateful to now be in the Coastal Bend working with the Coastal Living team. My goal is to help showcase the community and all the things that make the Coastal Bend so special. When I am not producing, I create behind-the-scenes fun and engaging Reels and TikToks!
Fun Facts About Me:
I am a huge Taylor Swift fan. Some would say I am the biggest Swiftie in the Coastal Bend (and by some, I mean ME!)
I am from San Antonio which means I am a huge Spurs fan. Spurs Por Vida!
I am obsessed with beagles. I have a beagle and he is literally all I think about. Ask me to show you a picture... I dare you!
I love to cook and bake goodies. Catch me on Coastal Living, cooking up some tasty treats!
I love everything the Coastal Bend has to offer and spend my free time exploring South Texas, trying a new restaurant, and relaxing at the beach!
