Senior Public Policy Specialist
As a life-long activist in the women's movement, Monica began her career as a domestic violence advocate in Montana, Chicago and England. Her work with survivors afforded her a unique perspective on the issues that impact women's lives and fueled her desire to advocate for survivors at a macro level. While completing her Master's in Communication Studies, she was the Public Relations and Advocacy Coordinator for a women's substance abuse treatment program, where she coordinated the agency's first legislative call-to-action campaign and initiated a speaker's bureau of women in recovery. Monica joined NNEDV in 2007 as a Public Policy Specialist and co-chairs national coalitions working to improve federal legislation and increase resources to address and prevent domestic violence.
