Monica is currently Director at ProInspire, where she is working to advance race equity in the social sector through Communities of Practice and custom programs. She has experience working with organizations to operationalize equity and inclusion through strategy, programs, and policies.
As founder and mindful justice coach at Accidental Perfectionist, Monica helps aspiring and committed white allies to re-examine long-held beliefs, use body-based practices to manage overwhelm, and design their own unique anti-racism plan.
Monica received her Masters from the Harvard School of Public Health where she studied social determinants of health, leadership, and social change. One highlight of Monica’s career was, as an AmeriCorps volunteer, organizing the first ever celebration of MLK Day in the city of Columbia, SC in 1999. Watching hundreds of residents marching towards the park in Five Points, and hearing their voices sing ‘We Shall Overcome’, remains a lasting moment of inspiration in her heart.
