Monica is a survivor of a 16 year emotionally, financially, sexually and physically abusive marriage.

She also knows the frustration in putting her and her daughter’s lives back together.
As Monica began her journey of healing in 2009 God planted the vision for Daylight, Inc in her spirit and a month later Daylight, Inc was born. It is Monica’s heart’s desire to save other women from suffering in silence as she did, by speaking out against domestic abuse and violence and teaching women and girls the signs of an abusive relationship.
It is through counseling, mentoring, presentations, classes, contingency training, strategic partnerships, alliances; literature and community events that Monica mentors and empowers young women through a process to help strengthen their faith, love and respect themselves, set boundaries for themselves and others, build healthy lasting relationships and become servant leaders.

In 2010 Monica received the Bold and Fearless Award for Domestic Violence Advocacy from the Stone Mountain-Lithonia Chapter of the 100 Black Women of Atlanta.
