She is a Towson University Professor, Thinkful UX Mentor, and UX Designer. Monique finds her joy in empowering people, visual storytelling, and moving bravely through any obstacle with her clients.

Monique attended Towson University for advertising, marketing, and communications. After her Bachelor’s Degree, she went further and attained a Master’s Degree in Publication Design from the University of Baltimore.

Always challenging herself, she then blazed the trail from graphic design to ux design. Monique then tapped into her need to uplift others through education, first as a professor, next as a mentor, and now, she adds human-centered design to her identifiers.

Monique drives to create a space for everyone, and she uplifts marginalized professionals and peoples through beautiful branding, visual storytelling, optimized videos, and enticing graphics. She believes that our vulnerability gives us power, and she knows that true success comes from our stories.
