Meet Jocelyn Ortega, our new Monterey County public safety reporter

It took me two weeks to finish my life in Los Angeles and start a whole new life and career on the Central Coast. No one knew, but it didn’t take long to make lifelong friends.

As a 20-year-old reporter, I talked about small business owners, politicians, agricultural workers, supporters, and students. Every time I talked about something new, I realized that our experience was very similar. Being a journalist started to feel like a home, which I always wanted.

I got off to a rough start in my life.

Having an abusive mother and an absent father was one of the most difficult things I had to overcome. The last thing my mother told me before I became a foster parent when I was a teenager was that without her, I would be the only prostitute in my life.
