Monique is a proud alumna of NLC Louisiana’s 2017 cohort. Because of her positive experience as a fellow, Monique pivoted from working as a Senior Academic and Career Advisor at Tulane University to focus on a career in politics and social justice. In just two years she has already worked on two winning campaigns, with the Unanimous Jury Coalition in 2018, and Louisiana State Representative Aimee Adatto Freeman for District 98 in New Orleans. As a State Representative’s legislative assistant, she organized a bipartisan coalition to help successfully pass legislation within her first six months. Monique volunteers her free time at the local skate park and is a pioneering feminist voice in the New Orleans skateboard community.
