Trey Serna was born and raised in Harlingen, Texas, a small city in the Rio Grande Valley. After graduating from Harlingen High School, he went on to attend the University of Texas – Pan American (now known as University of Texas – Rio Grande Valley). Trey graduated magna cum laude with a degree in journalism.

He started his career in TV news at the ABC-affiliate in south Texas, KRGV Channel 5 News. He made his way to Houston and joined CW39 in 2010, where he would eventually serve as the supervising producer to the newscasts including Eye Opener, which would later become Morning Dose.

In 2015, Trey joined the education world, serving as the spokesperson for Sheldon ISD. He would then go on to join the communications team at Fort Bend ISD. Trey made his return to TV news and joined the Morning Dose family in December 2018.

Trey is happy to call Houston home. In his spare time, he enjoys running and spending time with his family and friends. Trey and his husband are also proud dog dads to their two rescued boys, Cooper and Charlie.
