Prevention Educator Specialist
Raised in Dimmitt, Monica knows the importance of community involvement and serving others. She studied mass communications at West Texas A&M. Prior to entering the nonprofit community, she worked in accounting at The American Quarter Horse Association. Her desire to serve others and passion for justice is the foundation for her work at Family Support Services.
She has been married for 8 years and has two beautiful boys who further influence her work. They love going on family vacations and getting hooked on Netflix series together! In her spare time, Monica is an active member of her church, Amarillo for Christ. She leads worship alongside her husband during the Sunday services and leads worship for the prison ministry as well. She desires to show the love of God through acceptance, encouragement and helping others find hope. (1 Thessalonians 5:11)
Monica loves her family, her work, music, Mexican food, beaches, her mini-van and appreciates a good red lipstick. Ultimately, Monica desires to be fruitful and productive for the benefit of her family, coworkers, clients and community. Her goal is to bring out the best in anyone she meets…even if it’s just a simple smile.
