Monica came to the field of coaching and consulting after pursuing diverse jobs in teaching, business, and healthcare while also raising her family. When Monica took a coaching class in 2006, it started a new chapter in her life. Monica took her years of experience and passion for helping others and combined it with a career that allows her to empower others. After training and certification in Life Coaching, Monica continued her studies in Organization and Relationship Systems Coaching, giving her the understanding, tools and experience to handle the sensitive, emotional, and deeply satisfying work of relationship building for personal and professional relationships.
In 2011 Monica became certified as a coach and trainer with Peoplemap™ System of personality, leadership and conflict resolution assessments and tools. This helps her clients understand themselves and others better, and facilitates team building and the ability to communicate effectively and skillfully with others. Monica continues to learn new tools and concepts in order to empower her clients, including the work of David Emerald (The Power of TED), John Gottman, PhD, Wayne Dyer, and Byron Katie.
Monica works with individuals, couples, and teams as a coach, a small business consultant, and a facilitator of personal and professional growth. Through one-on-one coaching, presentations, and workshops, Monica helps people create a master plan full of personalized goals, strategies, winning perspectives and the inner strength to take the challenging or more rewarding route, and to master the tough conversations. She has a passion to motivate her clients to see beyond the ordinary or expected, and to pursue all the possibilities without fear or doubt. She acts as their accountability partner and works side-by-side as an equal partner, ready to coach and challenge her clients to excel and succeed.
Monica’s primary clients are emerging entrepreneurs, executives, and work teams who are stressed, stuck, dealing with conflict, or trying to create something better in their future. From coaching they find clarity of purpose, confidence in their abilities, improved communication, personal awareness and growth, and professional satisfaction.
Over the course of her adult life, Monica has spent more than 20 years as an active volunteer and board member of a community service organization, earning the Trumbull, CT Humanitarian of the Year award in 2004 for her leadership and passion for conservation. Monica is an avid photographer in her spare time, as well as wife, mother and very young grandmother living in Shelton, CT.
