Tell me a bit about yourself. Where did you go to college? What do you do? What are you involved in?

I'm from Wisconsin, went to school there but in 2000 left for NYC. I went to grad school at Columbia and moved to DC where I worked in Higher Ed. In 2007 I started teaching high school. I love it and can't wait to start teaching in The Bronx. I love to go out to lounges, enjoy restaurants, and am forever reading and attending poetry events. Fashion is a big part of my life and I can't wait to be able to shop. I am also really committed to volunteerism and will always attend an event supporting education or homelessness, two issues near and dear to me.

Are you interested in planning/attending charity events? Or just interested in attending fun outings? (Either one is fine)

Both sound great!

Will you actually attend events, and if so, what do you hope to get out of being a part of this group?

I will! I hope to meet and build real relationships with the group members. I believe in building friendships that go beyond the surface.


I'm relocating back to NYC and can't wait to reconnect with the city I love!

What Monica is saying about this Meetup Group

It was a great brunch and then a nice walk around SoHo. See you ladies soon!
