When San Gabriel Valley resident Rocky Martinez isn’t dancing hula or Tahitian, she can be found working for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department as a corrections officer. She’s also a huge fan of the Dallas Cowboys and enjoys watching the Discovery Channel, Dancing with the Stars, X-Factor, 20/20, and 48 Hours. She has a 21-year-old son and a 13-year-old daughter. One of her proudest moments was when she graduated high school when she was 8 ½ months pregnant and proved to her friends, family, and classmates that she could still succeed in life. She was also extremely proud when her son graduated from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Academy—carrying on the family tradition. Rocky loves to host work fundraisers for different charities and for fallen deputies. When she brings people together for a great cause, it brings a great peace to her soul. Her goal in life is to see her children grow into adulthood, be healthy, and to learn to appreciate life.
