Monica specializes in executive development and leadership in entertainment, technology, fashion, retail and finance. Coaching is a creative, inspiring and empowering partnership that enables individuals and teams to maximize their professional potential. It is a highly effective interactive process that enables clients to make significant, positive and sustainable changes across global sectors. Monica works with leaders to engage and inspire those around them, to build trust and collaboration in challenging situations, to manage conflict and foster communication, and to exceed expectations and goals, creating a positive impact on productivity and bottom-line results.


Monica has had the privilege to work with leaders seeking cultural change, helping them to shift centuries-old patterns in order to create a more inclusive and diverse workforce. Her coaching shines light on challenges and bias with curiosity as she provides the empathy and compassion required for individuals and teams to make personal and professional shifts. She recognizes that cultural change requires both institutional and developmental change and is honored to be a change agent. She is committed to providing the highest quality coaching and values confidentiality, discretion, intelligence, humor, authenticity and evidence-based coaching. She works with clients globally--in person and via Skype. 


Monica has had the honor and privilege to work with leaders from organizations like these: Aol, Apple, Ares Management, Algenist, Beachbody, Buzzfeed, CBS, Chanel, DGA, Discovery, Disney, Estée Lauder, Fox, Google, Hyland’s, ICM, LVMH, NBCUniversal, Netflix, Steve Madden, UCLA Health, Snapchat, Starz, WGA and Yext, among others. She is an expert in diversity and inclusion strategy and also a Global Professional Speaker on Women in Leadership.


Monica grew up on the east coast and graduated with honors from Phillips Academy, Yale University and Columbia University. Her career path enabled her to work alongside top leaders in the entertainment and digital technology industries. She began her career as a writer/director and after garnering awards for short films, worked with Oscar-nominated directors Julian Schnabel and Tim Robbins in New York. In Los Angeles, she served as Chief of Staff to the Chairman & CEO of the William Morris Agency. She then became a founding team member of Fashionology, an innovative digital and retail experience store, where tween girls could design and make their own clothes. Shortly thereafter, she discovered coaching, where she is able to help individuals, teams and organizations leverage their unique talents to achieve groundbreaking results. Her vast knowledge of the entertainment industry, her business, retail, fashion and technological expertise, coupled with her intuition, wit and deft strategic mind make her an extraordinary coach for corporations and individuals globally.

Monica is committed to sustainability efforts to arrest climate change and to inclusion efforts to retain, engage and promote diverse leaders. She donates coaching to at-risk teens and individuals in need. She believes that everyone can benefit from coaching and that it should not be a privilege for the few. She earned her coaching certificate from Coach U, her Executive Coach training privately with a Yale Psychologist and Professor and is a member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and the Institute of Coaching at Harvard University.

She is fluent in French and is a dedicated yoga practitioner, surfer and skier.
