Terry Ortega


Terry Ortega


There are many cool adjectives to describe The Indy‘s new Calendar and Listings editor, Terry Ortega. Broadway fanatic. Deadpan joker. I Love Lucy fan (her Lucy Halloween costume rocked). Fashion Institute (FIDM) alum. Muralist. Before she joined our team in early October, Terry worked for a travel agency, with perks that included trips to Peru, Venezuela, Guatemala, and parts of Europe. She has been all over the world, but this fourth-generation Santa Barbaran and mom of two knows that her hometown, with its great beaches and “old-time community,” is world class in its own way. “It’s still a small town — that’s what I love about it.”
