Monica moves to Gabriola

Gabriola postcard

It’s been a busy fall and winter for Monica! Now, not surprisingly, this EDUtainer makes her home at Marmalade Cottage on magical GABRIOLA – “The Isle of the Arts“.

As a result you can now choose from two places for one-to-one personal visioning/goal setting with Monica: at her fabulous Marmalade Cottage OR, if the west coast of Canada is not your style, she can also work with you at the glamourous The Meridian in Las Vegas!

For inspiration check Monica’s Signature Presentation Feet Firmly Planted in Midair. For more information, send Monica an email,

Mayor’s Lunch for Mental Health Speech

Monica has been an educator in Europe, India, and also worked in Johannesburg, South Africa. She says she used that transition as a base for her unique and interactive message of moving from tolerance to acceptance.

Here’s a throwback from a speech she performed in Swift Current, Saskatchewan​ back in 2011 at the Mayor’s Lunch for Mental Health.
