As the owner of The Resilient You – Motivational Speaker/Teacher since January 2014 and the co-author of the United States Air Force’s official Resiliency curriculum; she is indeed all that and more!  She provides lifesaving tools to audiences to help them identify their strengths, believe in those strengths, build, and overcome challenges and conflicts.  Her message is simple:   “You” are Resilient and “You” have the power to “Bounce Back”!

She shares personal stories about being a 20 year Airman, wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, falling down, and dealing with anger, as she continues to the fight in this thing she calls LIFE.  And that is not enough for her…

Monique’s purpose is without any doubt to serve, by first being attentive to the needs of others showing empathy and making everyone she meets feel AMAZING!  She empowers her audiences to access their personal power and face whatever comes their way.

A sought-after public speaker, Monique has been the keynote presenter for Washington State Veterans Women Summit, Washington State Social Security Administration, many Washington and Oregon National Guard Family Readiness Yellow Ribbon Programs, and has trained over 9,000 active duty and reserve military personnel, military families and civilians across the United States just to name a few.  She also pioneered the Air Force’s 1st Airman Resiliency Cell located at Joint Base Lewis McChord, WA.
