Monica is a decedent of cowgirls and bodhisattvas. She is a fifth-generation Nebraskan who followed the Dharma west to Los Angeles. She graduated from University of the West with a Master of Divinity in Buddhist Chaplaincy in May 2013. She is continuing her education at Claremont School of Theology in the Pracitical Theology PhD program on the spiritual care and counseling (chaplaincy) track. She also works at UWest as Institutional Effectiveness & Planning Officer (IEPO), Information Literacy Instructor, and a Volunteer Campus Chaplain. An avid writer and blogger, Monica hopes one day to make major contributions to the scant literature about the practice of Buddhist spiritual care and practical theology.
