Monica first began her speaking career in 1989 with a keynote to 8600 fellow college students. In 27 countries and all 50 states, she has since provided keynote addresses and training through her firm Contagious Companies, Inc. for the last 25 years. Monica has earned both an MBA and the honor of Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) through National Speakers Association (NSA). She has served her community in the role of President of the Board for Freedom Ride, President of NSA Central Florida, and NSA National Strategic Planning Committee Member, Editorial Advisory Board Chair of SPEAKER Magazine, NSA National Treasurer and member of the NSA Board of Directors since 2011.
A former corporate executive, recently selected to serve on the Leadership Advisory Board of Crummer School of Business Leadership Center of Rollins College, Monica has become known as a leadership development expert who writes, speaks, trains, coaches, and consults on how to become a better leader in life and work. She is the author of six books, including Contagious Leadership and Make Difficult People Disappear, and has written and interviewed for many media outlets.
Yet, when she is not volunteering, speaking, or training, Monica leads her life, manages to maintain her entertaining and contagious sense of humor, and corrals the voices in her head, either from the back of one of her horses or when spending time with her amazing family.
