Hi I’m Monica,
An intuitive business strategist, writer, and entrepreneur dedicated to helping you become the change agent you’re meant to be.
I help visionaries, like you, create profitable businesses that make a positive difference in the world.
A recovering corporate workaholic, I’m proud to have created an award-winning book and a socially-conscious coaching and consulting firm that has helped hundreds of entrepreneurs dream big and take meaningful action.
Over the past 20+ years, I’ve worked with innovative CEO’s and thought leaders, and have also led my own companies. I’ve worked with both for-profit and non-profit organizations.
In these roles, I’ve led national healthcare transformation initiatives, launched multiple start-ups, and redesigned processes and workflows. This has helped me gain the skills to help you navigate large, complex systems, and leverage the interconnectedness of seemingly unrelated processes & entities.
My experience spans a variety of industries including healthcare companies, technology and AI companies, law firms, artists, healers, consultants, and more. In every industry, I noticed a consistent them; no matter how great of an idea, without the proper strategy, leadership, processes, and workflows, it will always remain just an idea.
In 2014, I decided to start my own consulting firm. I wanted to help more visionary entrepreneurs become impactful leaders. Since then, I’ve helped dozens of entrepreneurs and companies expand their impact, design innovative result-focused strategies, and improve their bottom line. Learn more about my clients here.
I have my master’s degree in management from Warner Pacific University and my bachelor’s degree in psychology from Colorado State University. I currently live in Portland, Oregon with my amazing husband, our daughters, and our two rescue dogs, Marley and Chewie. When I’m not busy helping changemakers, you can find me sipping chai at my favorite local coffee shop, doing yoga, writing, or working on a puzzle.
“You never change things by fighting against the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.” ~Buckminster Fuller
A New Paradigm is Emerging
We have entered into a time of rapid change in the world today and are in the midst of a major paradigm shift. From The Change Code, we know society is moving from a very rational, linear, and scientific value system into one that is focused on healing the self and the planet, creating a more inclusive society for all.
We are witnessing the crumbling of outdated business models and institutions that no longer meet the increasingly complex needs of our world.
At the same time, changemakers are envisioning and designing new paths and ways of interacting in the world. There are opportunities for growth and expansion at every turn.
Many people are uncomfortable and resistant to change. As a changemaker, you can help design new pathways and ways of being in the world. This is your time and the world needs you and your light now more than ever.
Einstein said it best, “We cannot solve our problems using the same thinking we used when we created them.”
Furthermore, change cannot take place without action. Often times, revolutionary ideas get stuck in draft mode because you don’t know where to start.
As an Activator, Connector in the Strengths-Finder model, I take pride in being able to unpack complex theories and ideas, and identify and outline the steps needed to bring your vision to life. I apply the principles laid out in my book, “The Change Code,” and use my extensive experience in innovation, development, and leadership to help you develop new ways of doing things. These new ways will set you apart from your competitors and will generate the far-reaching change you wish to see in the world.
Lead a Revolution
A revolutionary business forever changes what we do. They take an industry that once operated one way and have us look at it in a totally different manner. These companies tend to be the most transformational, gain the biggest market share, and achieve the highest valuations.
My mission is to help inspire social, economic, and cultural change on a community and global level by supporting and empowering visionary leaders.
By helping them to realize their business goals, together can create change and make a difference. As outdated business models, institutions, and ways of life are phasing out, new opportunities for growth, innovation, and expansion are emerging. Now is the time to create change and become active in the global revolution.

Within 3 months of working with Monica, I doubled my clients and doubled my sales
“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.”
