When she's not writing, she's roller skating.
Monica's first experience working in a proper newsroom was as a community news manager for Aggrego, a division of the Chicago Sun-Times. She managed the production of three community websites by producing and curating new streams of content through local engagement on social media. She was able to develop relationships with individuals in the community through the aggregation, production and publishing of stories.
As an outreach coordinator, Monica worked as a member of a larger team in reaching monthly marketing goals and learned how to refine and implement an outreach plan. She developed clear strategies for a particular niche, marketing to private practice therapists, and reported regularly to physicians and therapists to identify new sources of prospective clients. She also wrote, edited, and produced columns for monthly newsletters, website, videos and promotional materials.
Monica is a freelance writer with a news reporting and copywriting background. She creates content, articles, and blogs for websites. She also write articles for digital and print publications and is available to write press releases and content for ghostwriting and documentary projects.
Her research, reporting and community news stories have been featured in the Chicago Sun-Times, In These Times, The Better Government Association and the Red Line Project.
