Mónica has been working in the NYS Legislature on and off since she graduated with her MPA from the Rockefeller College of Public Policy and Affairs at SUNY Albany.
In late 2010, Mónica founded The Hispanic Coalition NY, Inc., where she serves as President and Chief Executive Officer. The organization is committed to empowering the Hispanic community through education on important educational, social, economic and political issues. The organization focuses on connecting the Latino community and works to promote achievements in this fast growing demographic group through its signature program: NY's 40 Under 40 Rising Stars Awards. The program recognizes members of the Hispanic/Latino community who have demonstrated outstanding accomplishments and achievements in the areas of business, educations, politics, non-profit sector, community service, and more. The Rising Stars have demonstrated a quality of performance that indicates they are Leaders among their peers and will continue to develop into distinguished members in their community.
