Monica joined the Center in July 2016 as the Operations Assistant. Her diverse professional background includes non-profit volunteer coordination, co-owning a store-front business, professional sales, college and corporate computer training and freelance writing. Monica has always enjoyed volunteering in her community.
Although she has called Kansas City home for 20 years, Monica grew up living in numerous states—mainly on the east coast—and overseas. She did stay on the Virginia Peninsula long enough to earn her BA, with honors, from Christopher Newport University in English with an emphasis in Professional Writing.
