After graduating from college, she wanted a career that allowed her to remain connected to her farming roots, which she now achieves by working with clients in the agriculture industry.
Described as a hard worker, a good teacher, and a team player, Monica remains focused on client success. She attributes her achievements to her parents, who instilled in her a good work ethic and a strong belief in taking pride in what you do.
