About Monica
Status: edg3 FUND Finalist with 'SectAway

Summary

I have a degree in Biochemistry/Cell Biology from UCSD and have worked in medical research, including drug development. I then went to medical school and graduated Alpha Omega Alpha. I completed my Orthopaedic training at the University of Colorado followed by a Hand Surgery fellowship at the Medical College of Wisconsin. After only 6 1/2 years of practice, I was forced to quit due to multiple sclerosis.

Redefining myself has taken some effort. I taught myself to crochet and have since joined Kitsap Fancy Crocheters Guild and Crocheters Guild of America. I enjoy crocheting with thread and beads and that helped lead to the 'SectAway bracelet design.

The 'SectAway project combines my background in science and medicine with aesthetics and creativity.
