Who's Monica?

Who's Kristin?



Monica Goes is the travel show to inspires people to push out of their comfort zones and find some adventure!

Monica started the webseries in December of 2014 because she wanted to show people that you don't need to be an expert or an adrenaline junky to have epic adventures! 

The show features many of America's most visited places from national parks to big cities and also a few international destinations. From the scary, to the weird, to the downright awesome, Monica will take you on unique experiences and show you that if she can do it, so can you!


Kristin Herman is a videographer from Chicago, Illinois. Moving to Los Angeles, California in 2012 to pursue acting she quickly realized her love for production. Kristin wrote and produced her first short film “A Hell of a Night” then took classes in editing and directing to round out her abilities. 

Aside from working on her personal projects, she loves hiking, camping, and if challenged to a pool tournament she will try her hardest not to lose. 

Upon having the opportunity to go to Costa Rica in 2016, she fell in love with filming the outdoors. Currently, Kristin films for Monica Ortega on “Monica Goes” show and is always ready to capture the next adventure.​

Monica Ortega is originally from Holt Michigan and graduated from Western Michigan University with a B.A. in Acting. She worked as an entertainer and entertainment supervisor at the Double JJ Resort singing, acting, line dancing, riding a bull, and doing stunt shows before moving to Nashville Tennessee. After three years of hosting and teaching line dance at the Wildhorse Saloon, her acting career brought her to Los Angeles where she acted in commercials.

In December 2014, she started Monica Goes and has now produced over 60 episodes and over 200 videos in three years and built a following of over 40,000.

Monica's goal is to have a show that inspires other people to break out of their comfort zone, face their fears, and go on adventures!
