About Monica

Born on Long Island, living now in Brooklyn. I’m here to share my passion for running, and some other hobbies I’ve picked up along the way. During the day, I build community around CARE, which is a leading global humanitarian organization working to save lives, fight poverty, and achieve social justice (and are the founders of the original “care package”). In the evening, I run, bike, walk, spend time with my favorite people, sew, dance, and yes, watch reality TV.
