About the City's Organizers
I love my small community in Central Washington state. I am a school psychologist by day, and a socialite and adventurer by night. I love to experience the arts and the inspiration of others. As a board member of Gallery One Visual Arts Center, I am thrilled to be an organizer for our Pecha Kucha events!

Monica’s primary responsibility is to ensure that Gallery One is relevant to the community it serves. Before moving to Ellensburg from Seattle, she oversaw artist grants and professional development at Artist Trust and was a member of SOIL, an artist collective. She also had a brief stint as the Fremont Solstice Parade Director.
