Brittny Mejia joined the Los Angeles Times as a Metpro trainee in 2014. Previously, she worked at the Arizona Republic, the Arizona Daily Star and the Oakland Tribune, among other publications. Don’t bother asking where she’s from because she’s a military brat and won’t be able to give you a straight answer. She can, however, tell you she graduated from the University of Arizona. Bear Down!
