Monica is dedicated to helping people improve their communication skills. As Executive Director of the Illinois Science Council, she is particularly passionate about helping scientists do so. Her approach to closing the gap between those trying to convey science & engineering and those trying to understand it comes from training in law and policy (in which precise communication is critical), coupled with real experience of being a long-time consumer of science outreach, and a deep, practical understanding of marketing science (which requires making it engaging). It’s done with an unbridled passion for understanding science and promoting it widely, and having great respect for scientific education.
Monica is particularly passionate about the education and impact that is possible in the live, in-person format often accompanied by slide visuals using PowerPoint or Prezi. She is a sharp, engaging and sought-after speaker and workshop leader.
