Who Is Monina?

I'm a recovering journalist. I've been chasing stories since I was 15 years old. My career started in a high school broadcast studio.

For the past 20 years, I held roles spanning story creation, media relations, and social media for newsrooms, major B2C brands, healthcare, and small businesses. My experience is deep.

Storytelling has stayed at the heart of all I do. I develop compelling content, everything from long-form articles to short social media posts.

Why is storytelling so important? Because stories connect people. I believe in community. What I do today is all about relationships. How can my clients grab online interactions and bring them to life? Are we talking with them? More importantly are we listening to what they say?

As the current community manager for the Content Marketing Institute, I have conversations with thousands of marketers from around the globe each week. As a steward of CMI’s social media efforts,  I am responsible for shaping the way the organization communicates with the online world.

Let me show you what I mean. Let's connect. If you'd like to chat about social media, community management, or basketball (I love basketball.), tweet me. If you want to meet for a virtual cup of coffee, check out my Starbucks pictures on Instagram then join me over on LinkedIn. Let's chat.
