Monica is a passionate and dedicated champion for sustainability. She doesn’t view environmental responsibility as an afterthought or a checklist. Rather, she believes environmental stewardship is the culmination of a multitude of decisions and a commitment to the better future.
“Monica embodies the conscience of sustainable design. She lives and acts according to her values and beliefs that environmental responsibility is not merely a spreadsheet, but a physical, social, and moral imperative.” – DLR Group Senior Principal Paul Westlake
