About Monnica

Who is Monnica?


You might wonder why Monnica has two n's in her name. It all started with her paternal grandmother doubling the consonants in her children's names. Monnica's father, Cabbot, adopted the same naming convention.

Monnica joined Toastmasters in February 2006 at the suggestion of a fellow engineer. "When I experienced all the fun one can have while learning then leading, I was hooked." 

It's with that passion and enthusiasm that she will bring her unique skills and abilities to serving on the board of directors. Monnica is hard-working and dedicated to any endeavor she takes on. She takes ownership of what she says she will do. Monnica will go to great lengths to do things right and behave in an ethical manner.

Monnica has richly benefited from the features, benefits and values of all that the Toastmasters program provides.

Together Towards Tomorrow



My favorite quote is by Henry Ford who said: "If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself," which has been my theme since my term as District Governor. 

I am 

  • Passionate about teamwork 
  • Committed to encouraging healthy communication among leaders
  • Convinced that teamwork and collaboration will provide opportunities for members to benefit from diverse perspectives, expertise and resources
  • Focused on attaining consensus and will bring an objective voice to the board

Effective collaboration works in Toastmasters - from club meetings all the way to board-of-director communications. 

Together, when we work towards 

  • Resolving conflict
  • Building strong club leadership

We can benefit from all that our organization has to offer and succeed together.



Strong leadership, clear communication and strategic planning is required to achieve our organization's mission to make our program available to everyone everywhere. 

Why Monnica?

  • I bring robust leadership skills in Toastmasters International, professionally and in the community. As LGM (CGD), I led a marketing team that created and utilized formal documentation for training club sponsors and mentors.  
  • Serving as a two-term Region Advisor, I strategized with districts and collaborated on action plans for achieving district goals. I will deploy these strategic skills as a contributing member on the board. 
  • I am analytical and a problem solver.
  • As a professional, I manage budgets of over 24 million dollars and estimate manpower forecasts.

Now that Pathways is fully deployed, let's work together to close the gap between where we are now and our desired position of all members achieving communication and leadership success one level at a time.

Moving Towards a better future, Together we can:

  • Strengthen the quality of our clubs
  • Experience a smoother Pathways implementation
  • Increase the capacity of our district leaders



Together, our Tomorrow is bright.  With dedication and determination we can realize:

  • Automatic growth in our clubs
  • Stronger club leaders
  • Increased Toastmasters presence in pain-point markets such as engineering organizations locally
  • Growth of our organization globally by researching  target markets, building relationships and communicating the benefits of Toastmasters 

It would be an honor to be a servant leader on our board. I offer the desire and excitement to learn, to continuously improve and to represent Toastmasters members worldwide. Let's journey Together Towards Tomorrow!
