Monique is a member of the JS Human Resources (HR) team, applying her research and relationship-building skills to recruitment, retention and talent management activities. She’s a great fit for our agency since she began her career just like many of us- studying communications in the hopes of joining an agency.
Her first job involved customer acquisition for LevelUp, a tech startup providing rewards for mobile payments. After a year pounding the pavement in front of restaurants, an HR position at a social services agency opened up and Monique jumped at the chance to detour to a deskside position.
Her job at Trinity Social Services gave her experience in payroll, training and compliance and set her on an HR trajectory that included five years at The Woodruff Arts Center and subsequent work for The Adecco Group, one of the top recruiting agencies in the world.
Just prior to joining JS, Monique provided onsite talent management for Impact Workforce Solutions, focusing on employee relations, manager training and dispute resolution for a tech logistics company.
Monique graduated from the College of Charleston, where she became a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated and was president of PRSSA in her senior year. She started college at Claflin University with a music scholarship for clarinet performance but transferred when she found that a dual degree with music would not be possible there.
As the child of military parents, Monique got a taste of big city life from coast-to-coast before she moved to small-town Summerville, S.C. around the age of 10. Today, she lives in Brookhaven—an intown Atlanta suburb that’s a happy hunting ground for Monique’s foodie passions.
She’s a certified yoga instructor who teaches two days a week and a veteran volunteer with Atlanta’s Cool Girls. But when it comes time to unwind, Monique leans into music, movies and suspense novels.
