Monica’s biggest challenge as a parent is helping her kids establish healthy eating habits and a positive relationship with food, while navigating a culture of food bribery, body shaming and sneaky food marketing tactics.

When not working, Monica enjoys playing with her two young children, spending time outdoors and making soap.
