Monica Ortega is a professional on-camera host, author, speaker, and actress.

Monica has produced over 100 episodes for the show, worked with over 40 DMO’s and has been featured on Matador Network, Insider Travel, USA Today’s 10Best, Medium, and more.
She recently published her first book The Power of Pivoting – How to Embrace Change and Create a Life You Love” and is the co-host of the podcast Stumblin’ Forward. When she’s not traveling she can usually be found singing in cover bands or on the trail with her adventure dog Millie.
