“Monica’s spark in facilitating the Business and Planning Sessions were exactly what I needed to take my business to the next level and beyond! Her insights were valuable, her guiding questions were thought-provoking and encouraging. Her approach was thorough and systematic, yet free-flowing and natural. She has mastered the balance between the art and science of facilitation!
As an entrepreneur, it can be overwhelming to take on so many roles within an organization, but Monica’s ability in helping to prioritize and provide structure was not only like a soothing blanket for my worries, but she rejuvenated my zest for making a difference within my organization. Any leader who is looking to transform their vision into reality needs to partner with Monica.”

“When Community Heath Partners wanted to host the first Hackathon in the state of Colorado and the first Hackathon in the country on the topic of Medicaid, they immediately contracted with Monica Bourgeau. Monica’s healthcare expertise and her experience organizing the ‘Rural Medicine Hackathon & Ignite Rural Medicine’ program in Montana, made her the ideal candidate to run a program of the size and scope Community Health Partners needed to make their program a success.
Monica recruited faculty from the MIT Hackathon program, organized a team of Community Health Partner staff to develop the event agenda, secured a venue, and directed a Hackathon event that brought in over ninety local and a national leaders and innovators, who over two intense days developed eight programs and proposals designed to improve Medicaid delivery in Colorado.
The success of this program, and the energy, innovation, and enthusiasm created this program changed our community’s perspective on healthcare reform and how communities could be empowered to improve local care. Community Health Partners expresses its greatest appreciation to Monica Bourgeau for her leadership and drive in making our Hacking Medicaid event a rousing success!”
~ Dr. Joel Dickerman, DO, Chief Medical Officer, Community Health Partners, Colorado Springs, CO
“I watched Monica develop and grow a federally funded program from proposal, to execution, and finally, to fully operational. Under Monica’s leadership, the program and the team flourished. Monica is a strategic thinker and visionary with keen business sense. She is a collaborative leader that demonstrates passion for her work and easily translates that to a team around her. I am happy to provide this reference for Monica and am confident in the value she will bring to any organization.”

“Since I started working with Monica, I have learned valuable business lessons and strategies. If I was to streamline my business goals on my own, it would have taken me years to achieve what I have achieved in less than 3 months. Not only have I doubled my clients, I have doubled my sales and have learned golden rules from her on how I can sustain this and look towards the future. Monica comes with great knowledge and expertise in business coaching, and her teachings are invaluable. The one thing that makes Monica stand out, is her ability to connect with her clients on a personal level. She is so calm, knowledgeable and has an admirable way of leading with humility. Working with Monica has changed my perspective altogether, has taught me how to stay afloat and connect with clients in meaningful ways while working towards achieving my financial goals.”

Working with Monica changed the way I think as a business entrepreneur and enabled me to put plans in place that took both myself and the Paper Barn Creations to the next level – thank you!”

“I started working with Monica in October, because I was not getting new clients. We created a marketing plan and did some online promotion. By the middle of November, I already have 5 new paying clients, with some bookings for return sessions!
Monica also gave me some perfectly drawn up goal setting tools (that I didn’t really think were for me, but I have been working with the goal setting) and I love them they help me in more than my business. ”
~Jan Bell ~ Unwind with Jan Bell, Oregon City OR
“Working with Monica provided me with more clarity on who I need to “be” to achieve my business goals. She helped me flesh things out and was a great listener who asked relevant questions. She also provided great tools that helped me get even more from our session. I’d recommend Monica to entrepreneurs who need clarity on their goals, ideal client, marketing strategies, etc. Monica has a ton of knowledge and powerful tools with which to serve. I was impressed with how prepared she was; she had taken time to research my business ahead of our meeting and provided wonderful recommendations..”
~Dr. Raquel Muller ~ Joyful Imperfection Counseling, LLC, Tigard, OR
“Monica did a great job facilitating discussion on the wicked (ongoing, complex) problems we face in this world and then led us through an exercise where we created our on polarity map. This exercise helped us identify our mutual goals/common fears and taught us how to approach these types of problems with more understanding. By the end of our discussion, we understood the shift in approach that creates a win/win for all of us!”

“Monica agreed to do a one-on-one session for me. I was very skeptical about coaching at first. Never imagined I would walk away a changed woman!! I mean that from the depths of my soul, the experience has made me more positive and less likely to give up. I was at a really low place, I shed some tears but felt healed. I’m grateful to have been introduced to Monica and her coaching techniques. I want to share them with the world!! More please! “
