  • At the age of 14, Monica wrote a book review that was quoted in a local newspaper, The Vancouver Sun.
  • Monica loves interviewing unbiased experts who dig deep into root issues rather than promoting quick fix methods and treatments. One of her favorite interviews involved a local up-and-coming entrepreneur who used her clinical counselling background and knowledge of somatic therapy to support women recovering from trauma using a combination of counselling, community events, breath work, and culturally sensitive yoga.
  • Monica wrote a piece on the brain-gut axis to describe the feedback loop between symptoms of anxiety and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Explaining the connection between the brain and gut encouraged readers to address both the physical and mental components of their symptoms.
