What Others Are Saying

"I’ve had the pleasure of having Monica work with me for the past few years. During this time, she’s helped me build my reputation as an excellent artist, historian, and community servant which has also led to wonderful speaking opportunities. Monica also has the uncanny ability to take your experiences and develop them into a powerful, compelling, and moving narrative. I was able to use the story she created to receive multiple grants for my non-profit. She’s an amazing storyteller and brand strategist."
