Monica, a North Salinas High School graduate, played softball at the University of Tennessee, was a medalist at the 2008 Beijing Olympics where she threw the first perfect Olympic game and member of the two-time world champion USA National Team. She played professionally in the Japan Softball League with the Toyota Motor Corporation and for the champion Chicago Bandits in the National Pro Fastpitch league where she was three-time Pitcher of the Year.
In 2012 at the age 28 she was the youngest person to ever create a fund at the CFMC. In May 2016, the Houston-based Scrap Yard Dawgs, one of the newest teams in the National Pro Fastpitch league, signed Monica to a six-year, $1 million deal — believed to be the highest salary paid by a professional women’s sports team in the United States.
