A journalist for more than 18 years, Jessica Peralta has worked for newspapers, magazines and websites as a reporter, writer, editor and website manager. A journalism major and Cal State Fullerton graduate, she started out reporting for the Orange County Register before migrating into magazines and websites, including Coast, where she spent many years managing the lifestyle site. With a background in covering beats ranging in everything from education, local business and crime to pets, health and beauty, there are few topics she’s unwilling to tackle. Jessica has a passion for wellness, animals and horror, and pursues all three topics for websites, including Healthline, Dogs Naturally Magazine and her own website. She also regularly contributes to the Los Angeles Times and Behind the Badge OC. Always looking for new ways to tell stories, she also shoots and edits video. She’s thrilled to bring all these experiences to her role as editor for Parenting OC. When not writing or editing, she’s hanging out with her 110-pound German shepherd, Guinness, and her 13-pound, trouble-making black cat, Riot.
