Jody Ortiz is a wife and mother. She is currently working as a freelance and ghost writer.
In her spare time, she has volunteered as a Girl Scout leader, delivered meals for Meals on Wheels, and volunteered with St. Vincent de Paul where she delivered food to those in need and developed a database to keep track of donations.
Jody's recent exposure to wrongful convictions has led to her position on the board of Raye of Hope, an Oklahoma based organization that gives a voice to those who claim to be wrongfully convicted.
Jody is also on the Board of Directors for Survivors in Action, a nationwide non-profit advocacy group that supports victims of crimes including domestic violence, identity theft, elder abuse, cyberstalking, stalking, child abuse, rape, and sexual assault.
Although the overwhelming amount of hate Jody has received on a daily basis from her attackers paralyzed her for over two years, through encouragement from her family, her strong faith, and loving supporters and friends, Jody learned to face her fear and her harassers head on and reclaim her life through telling her story of survival to the world.
