About Monica

I am a writer, editor, and designer with a formal education in communications and publishing. I have a wide range of skills that are continually increasing—including writing, editing, graphic design, print production, and marketing.

I am currently pursuing my Master of Publishing at Simon Fraser University. During the program, I held an marketing internship with UBC Press.

In 2015, I graduated with honours from SFU with a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Communication and minoring in Publishing.

I graduated with distinction and a diploma of Publishing: Techniques & Technologies from the Publishing program at Langara College in 2007. During the program, I was the Managing Editor of Pacific Rim Magazine 2007.

I also completed a certificate in Editing from SFU’s Writing & Publishing Program in July 2010.
