Stephanie Serna joined the KSAT 12 News team in November 2009 as a general assignments reporter after spending three years working as a reporter in Austin at KXAN-TV and KEYE-TV. Stephanie began her career in San Antonio behind the scenes, working as a production assistant and editor at FOX 29. She then moved to Austin, where she worked as a producer and then moved further up Interstate 35 to Waco for her first reporting job.

Stephanie made her way back to Austin, where she was one of the first reporters on the scene of a fire at the governor's mansion in 2008. Clips from her live reports were featured at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum as part of a past exhibit highlighting the governor's mansion. Stephanie, a San Antonio native and graduate of John Jay High School, said she's glad to be back home.
