“I am a teacher by nature; a broadcast journalist by degree; an explorer by choice.”
Monica started coaching healthy lifestyles as the franchise owner for The Best of Health in Scotland 25 years ago. Since childhood, she’s overcome celiac disease, extreme allergies, chronic bronchitis, bone and ligament injuries which have all fueled her passion to adapt in order to achieve her goals. She is an accomplished 3rd-degree black belt, firewalking instructor, 3 x World Champion Pro Physique/Figure bodybuilder, MS Natural Olympia 2017, and 2019 INBA Hall of Fame Inductee.
“I’ll never forget my first time on stage at the NPC Lone Star Classic winning first place in Figure Masters at the age of 45. Since, I have competed for over 10 years, in 30 shows at the local, national and international levels in the NPC and PNBA.”
“I believe in living life to the fullest, being fit for my purpose and always moving forward and hope to inspire others to be fit, look fab, and live large at any age and from anywhere by focusing on nutrition, targeted physical activity, and a positive mindset.
I have traveled the globe extensively as a journalist, instructor, translator, and for exploration including a 2 year-round the world backpacking trip with my husband before having our 4 children.
