- B.S. in Kinesiology from Texas Woman’s University
- Expert in Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
Monica was born and raised in Plano, Texas. Although she initially went to a university in Chattanooga, Tennessee to pursue a nursing degree, she moved back to Texas after deciding she wanted to be a physical therapist instead. While at Texas Woman’s University, she was active in volleyball intramurals and the kinesiology club. Monica graduated in May of 2016 and is currently applying to physical therapy school. Her dream job is to be an Astronaut Strength, Conditioning and Rehabilitation (ASCR) specialist for NASA.
Monica has always had a desire to help those in need and she feels most fulfilled when she gets to do so. Growing up, she always thought that she would become a vet because she loves animals, but as she got older, a running injury made her realize that she wanted to help people instead. Monica was doing physical therapy for the first time at 19 years old and absolutely fell in love with it. She was inspired by her therapist who helped alleviate her pain and get back to running. At that moment, she knew she wanted to be a physical therapist.
Monica loves being active by strength training and running. She enjoys playing and watching a variety of sports although her favorite pastime is hiking. Her main passion is to help others and when she can, she feeds the homeless and goes on mission trips with her church to other countries.
