Monica’s home church is The Gathering Community Church in Fuquay-Varina, North
Carolina, where she sang in the Praise Band and worked in childcare. In May 2019, she graduates with her bachelor’s in social work from Barton College, a historic Disciples- related school in Wilson, North Carolina. She is active in Sigma Sigma Sigma, has served as President of the Social Work Club, and has been active in campus religious life. She first heard about XPLOR at a week-end retreat at the Disciples Christmount Center. Monica has volunteered at many different social service agencies and helped coordinate many different community service and philanthropic projects. For her senior project, she spent 400 hours working at Wilson Veterans Residential Services. She loves to sing, craft, hike, drink coffee, admire sunflowers and serve others. She is very excited that XPLOR will help her figure out where God is calling her to work and live post-grad.
