Hi I’m Monica

Creator of Treads and Higher Education Coordinator

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I’m a native Minnesotan who loves to travel and spent my senior year of college in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Throughout my time there I traveled and explored many places in South America and have also had numerous trips to Europe. I am currently working full time at an online university assisting nursing students. I love my job although it has nothing to do with my undergraduate degree, which was International Food systems, and have made the decision to pursue my Master’s in Higher Education so I am recently a student again. I speak a smattering of Portuguese and Spanish, although I’m not great at either, and hope to one day progress with my language-learning skills. I have two dogs whom I love and frequently snuggle with here at home in Minneapolis. I’m a new gardener and rock climber, long-time yogi and dancer. I hope that you learn more about me through my writing and if you have any comments or suggestions let me know!
