As a lifelong volunteer, she actively mentors military spouses, men, women, and youth who aspire to serve in their community and/or find balance in their lives.

She enjoys spending time with her 7-year-old grandson, making crafts, and reading. Monica believes that volunteering is a source of relaxation and peace and encourages others to take the time to assist others at least once a month.
