Monica’s career as a branding and marketing expert has spanned almost 20 years as a senior executive in the entertainment industry working with several studios, including Paramount Pictures and CBS Studios. Most recently, she established her own business here in Malibu, BrandVice LA. Over the years, she has helped launch and supported various grassroots organizations including the national organization Step Up Women’s Network as it launched its Los Angeles chapter. She is passionate about supporting youth from under-served communities to fulfill their potential by empowering them to become confident, college-bound, career-focused individuals ready to join the next generation of professionals to break glass ceilings in their fields. Joining the board of the Boys & Girls Club of Malibu, Monica extends this support to all children and young adults here in Malibu, who come from a multitude of diverse backgrounds and have as unique support needs that vary as much as they do as individual youths. Serving on the Board of Malibu C.A.R.T. highlights another of Monica’s passion, empowering individuals and families in danger of becoming, or who are homeless, by addressing challenges in a respectful and humane manner while providing and connecting them with supportive services that lead to long-term solutions. Monica is also a volunteer with A Safe Play for Youth (S.P.Y.), a Los Angeles organization that assists youth who are in danger of losing their homes.
