Monica Ortega is originally from Holt, Michigan where she worked as an entertainer at the Double JJ Resort singing, acting, dancing, jumping off of buildings, and occasionally riding a bull. When she was 22, Monica moved to England for six months and spent three weeks backpacking through Austria, Italy, Slovenia, and Greece and fell in love with traveling. From there she moved to Nashville where she sang and taught line dancing before ending up in Los Angeles, California. In 2014 Monica combined her love of hosting and adventure and created the travel webseries and blog Monica Goes. The show is all about taking unique adventures and getting outdoors. From national parks to major cities, Monica Goes has over 35 episodes, and 90 blogs, and she hopes to inspire people to push out of there comfort zone and join the adventure!
