Monica joined Alaska Business in 2019; previously she owned a boutique design studio for ten years, working with organizations around the world. Through working with a broad spectrum of organizations, Monica found her passion for designing for organizations focused on education and community development.
A long-time supporter of the Anchorage community, Monica has served on several nonprofit boards and is a founding member of AIGA Alaska—the local chapter of the national professional association for design—where she served as President from 2018-2020. Monica is currently a member of the Society of Publication Designers—Shaping Visual Culture and on the board of the Alaska Women’s Hall of Fame.
When not designing, Monica enjoys being in the water and spending time with her family indoors. Her “new” favorite font is Gilbert (Type with Pride!) and her guilty pleasure is eating McDonald’s fries and soft-serve ice cream together.
Note: For those interested in submitting their work for publication, our current policy is to commission illustrations, art, and photography exclusively from Alaskan artists.
