During her undergraduate career, she went on a relief mission trip to Sri Lanka after the tsunami took the homes of many people. Seeing so many people who could not afford basic medical attention broke her heart. Even though she went to the country to help these people, she couldn't help but feel like what she was doing was not enough. When she came back to the states, she decided that she needed to find a career that could help all people in every walk of life.

She is a Fellow for the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine, a specialty board for holistic fertility care. She loves working with people to help them rehabilitate from acute and chronic pain. 


Monica believes that many of the diseases that one encounters are a result of mental and emotional trauma. By bringing the body and mind to a state of balance, then one begins to heal without the use of prescription medication or invasive methods.
