Monica received her B.S. degree (summa cum laude, 1993) and her J.D. degree (1997) from Arizona State University. During law school, Monica participated in a semester-long mediation training clinic and in 2009, she completed her first collaborative training with the Collaborative Divorce Institute. Since that time she has trained extensively in both mediation and collaborative divorce practice.

Monica is a member of the Collaborative Professionals of Phoenix (CPP) as well as the International Association of Collaborative Professionals (IACP).

She also served on the State Bar of Arizona Board of Legal Specialization from 2009 to 2020. Monica believes that divorcing couples and their children benefit when they are given have the opportunity to reach settlements without the court’s intervention, and that the collaborative divorce process offers that opportunity. Monica’s philosophy is that “litigating to win” is not the only way to divorce.
