Monique created the Feminine Leadership Model™ through her research and personal experience incorporate and management settings. Her system helps women embrace their feminine strengths to combine them with traditional qualities to develop an effective leadership presence and create more influence and impact in a world still very much dominated by men.

Through her first‐hand experience working in the tech world of Silicon Valley, Monique learned at a young age that in business, what works for men doesn’t necessarily work for women. She discovered that there was a different way to lead that felt more authentic to who she was and not surprisingly, turned out to be more effective as well.

Combining 15 years of personal development work, professional coach training, and corporate experience, Monique has helped hundreds of women and men in cultivating a leadership style that is ultimately more inclusive and drives innovation – two things that are necessary in the 21st century economy.

Monique is a San Francisco native and currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Chris. She travels to the City by the Bay on a regular basis.
