Monica was born in Brooklyn (can you tell?!) and raised in the suburbs of New York City; she grew up the youngest of nine children in a blue-collar Roman Catholic family, and is now the mother of one daughter and two sons, the elder of whom has Down syndrome.
Monica worked as a waitress before and during college and received several generous scholarships that allowed her to transfer from community college to Harvard. She earned an associate’s degree in liberal arts from Rockland Community College, a bachelor’s degree from Harvard University with a concentration in economics, a law degree from Stanford Law School and a master’s in business administration from Stanford Graduate School of Business.
Monica is a Chartered Financial Analyst (“CFA”) and a member of the bar of the State of New York. She has worked as a commercial banker and an investment banker, among other things.
As an anarcho-capitalist (i.e., extreme libertarian), Monica is a proponent of Austrian economics and an uncompromising defender of personal liberty.
