Wife, Mother, Award Winning Business Owner, Writer & Speaker.
Monique is the founder & editor of Urban Mommy Inc. She is a seasoned entrepreneur in communications with 17 years of experience working across private, nonprofit, government and B2B sectors. Being a new mom she found that it was difficult to find other mothers with similar interests, passions and outlook so she took to the internet. She then decided to build her own community that is focused on healthy lifestyles, early childhood literacy, community and parenting. She is a firm believer that the experiences a child has in their youth will directly impact them as an adult. It was important to her to build a community that her daughter could grow up in and enjoy everyday and a community that moms can trust that provide real content that matters to them.
Her will to achieve comes only from her inner ability to self-reflect while motivating herself and others to pursue their highest level of ability. She takes great pride in helping others to achieve their dream of success. She currently serves as the founding president for the Greater Portland Alumni Chapter for Alpha Kappa Psi, a 2012 elected Delegate to the Democratic National Convention, District 43 Precinct Committee Person, Founder of the Society of Leaders Emerging, Communications Chair for the Small Business Advisory Council for The City of Portland and serves on several other boards and committees.
She is married to Sheldon and they have a 2 year old daughter Zoie. Her family is her pride and joy!
