I’m Monica, and I’m here to help make your dreams a reality

I’m a first-generation immigrant Latina from NYC. Growing up, I constantly found myself living a life of two halves: one that was my authentic self, and one that I invented to appease other people. I switched up my persona like Superman to Clark Kent.

As I entered the professional world, that experience followed me. It wasn’t until I found podcasting that I was able to make the two halves whole through complete freedom to pursue all of my passions and interests.
