Monica is an Army brat, an Army veteran (Rock of the Marne!) and now an Army spouse with two boys. She is a government and industry award-winning journalist, columnist and photographer, with experience as a videographer, guest blogger, editor, social media manager, and event designer/coordinator. In addition to her work with Planting Roots, Monica serves as the publicity chair for her local PWOC ministry and is part of her church’s worship team.

Monica loves tamales, R2D2, Batman, surprising others with gifts, and wearing ball gown on training holidays. Additionally, Monica and her husband love trying new foods and are taking full advantage of the culinary delights of South Korea where they are currently stationed. Every Friday she and her youngest son share in a tradition of trying a new café (one of the 75k+ in the country).

Her hope through her life is to be able to see where God is working and join Him in his work – ball gown optional.
