Let’s get the official introduction out of the way: 

I’m Monique. I am an active duty Air Force Logistics Officer, certified professional coach, speaker, entrepreneur, and photographer. I’ve been serving this great nation for nearly a decade and have been given the incredible opportunity to lead hundreds of Airmen, both military and civilian, in her career. I have served around the world to include the United States, Europe, and the Middle East.

I am a family photographer in my free time and help families create a family legacy they’re proud of through natural, meaningful images of their everyday life. I turn their story into a tangible family heirloom that will last for generations. I’ve had the opportunity to teach other working, busy moms how to use their cameras to build their family legacies as well.
 
I’m a leader and a creative. I believe the two are one in the same and thus, my Leadership LENS framework was born. You see, through my experience as a leader in the military and a creative at heart, I’ve discovered a way for you to create a legacy you’re proud authentically to lead your people well.
 
Now, let’s get personal:
 
I would not be where I am today without the help of those around me - my husband, my family, mentors, friends, and colleagues. Everyone comes to the table with different experiences and perspectives to help each other grow. 
 
When you’re stuck and you’re not sure what the next move should be - explore your options. When you’re given the next great opportunity and you’re not sure how to navigate it - ask for guidance. When you’re going through life day by day it's good to check in to see what goals you’re working towards - discover your truth.
 
You absolutely need to understand who you are, what you want, and where you’re going. Before you can lead (your family or at work), you need to lead yourself well. Then, call on your network to help you take the next step. I help you do both. 
 
I help you create the legacy you’re proud of in life (all encompassing: at work and at home - after all, life is life). 
 
The best place to start? Schedule a free coaching session to decide if coaching is a good fit for you right now.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

you've got questions, i've got answers

WHAT IS COACHING?
Coaching is collaboration between a you and me (your coach) where you define your own goals, choices, and decisions. I don't tell you what they should do, but instead I help you understand what choices best suit you, providing tools to help you make decisions. Coaching is not the "easy button," you get out of it what you put into it. I'm your accountability partner. Put in the work and I promise you'll see results.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COACHING, THERAPY, AND CONSULTING?
Therapy focuses on issues that are known as “below the surface." These are things that are deeper and perhaps seeded in trauma or disorders. Therapy is often past focused, helping individuals heal the past to help the current. 
Consulting is about fixing things and giving direction. Consultants tell you what to do based on their expertise - typically seen in business and large companies.
Therapy, Consulting, and Coaching can all go hand in hand, but it's important to understand the difference. 

IS COACHING FOR ME?
Absolutely! There are so many benefits of coaching. Coaching helps you to develop self-awareness, gain ownership and responsibility, helps improve performance, targets, and goals, increases your ability to identify solutions, empowers you, and helps you to communicate more effectively. If you still have questions, why not schedule a FREE SESSION? It's 20 minutes of your time and we'll see if coaching is the right next step for you and if we're a match - not like Tinder, promise.

​HOW CAN YOU HELP ME?
I'm your ticket off the struggle bus. It's important to understand what coaching is. I'm you guide and your sounding board. I'm here to inspire you to take action, whatever that may be. You don't have to be facing a challenge, you could be facing an opportunity - either way, I'm here to help you navigate. I'm here to help you create a legacy you're proud of.
