Monica has devoted more than twenty-five years of her career to nonprofit management for causes she is deeply concerned with. She has specialized in event production, fund development, brand awareness and elevating cause marketing missions. She joined the PSMF in January 2020 to help produce the inaugural March for Patient Safety and #uniteforsafecare campaign, serving as Campaign Director. In December 2020 she was promoted to the Foundation’s Director of Development.

Her support and passion for nonprofits has included working with AIDS Services Foundation, American Cancer Society, Special Olympics Southern California and Girl Scouts Orange County, to name a few. She has also consulted with organizations such as the Friends of the Santa Ana Zoo, Alzheimer’s Association San Diego, the Wall Las Memorias Project Los Angeles, and Family Assistance Ministries. She volunteers her expertise as a board member for the Newport Harbor High School Alumni Association and has served as Secretary since 2016.

Monica’s family has been touched by medical harm, so she feels very strongly about the mission of the PSMF. She is thrilled to become part of such a dedicated team!
