Coming from a multinational, working-class family, Monica has found a home advocating for the rights and financial security of laborers at Johnson + Krol since joining the Employee Benefits practice as an associate attorney in 2021.
Monica graduated Michigan State University College of Law in 2021 after receiving her bachelor’s degree from the University of Oregon. A thesis that advocated for corporate governance structures which shift more bargaining power to workers confirmed to Monica that her skills could be effectively put to work on behalf of labor. During law school, Monica worked as a student attorney at the Alvin-Storrs Low Income Taxpayer Clinic and served as managing editor of MSU’s Animal and Natural Resource Law Review. Monica also clerked for the housing division of Legal Services of South Central Michigan.
Now at JK, Monica is excited to be a part of a collaborative firm that helps unions and gives her the freedom to grow as a professional.
