I first meet Monica several years ago. I later had the opportunity to invite Monica to join me on a TMAC project in the DFW Metroplex. Monica was a great asset to the project, leading and supporting upgrades in procedures and processes for the clients' CAPA, RMA, and complaint handling processes and provided critical support for the company’s readiness for an FDA inspection. I look forward to working with her in the future.

I first met Monica when she was with Coastal Life Technologies. Then later in her career, I quickly asked her to support TMAC. Specifically, she helped found the Medical Manufacturers Association of South Central Texas. This was at the height of the shortage of PPE and her efforts and connections helped fulfil many critical needs. I highly recommend Monica due to her professional leadership, process knowledge and just being a great collaborator.

After many years with the same company that had a positive impact on my career development, a merger caused a reorganization. I reached out to Monica for some advice. After a phone conversation and a follow up in person meeting in which she asked me questions specific to my situation, I determined that I needed a new challenge and a fresh start. I strongly recommend Monica for coaching and leadership guidance!

I have worked with Monica for five years and found her to be an extremely competent manager and engineer. She worked with us to bring our product from an idea to a commercially viable medical product. She managed a group of engineers to get the project done in a timely fashion.
