Humanitarian, Activist, Sportswoman, Marketing and Sales Executive

Humanitarian. Animal rights champion. National Eclipse Award winner. Tireless worker for the poor, underprivileged and abused. Advocate for education, health and wellness, particularly among children. There’s no string of titles or honors that do justice to Monique and her work on behalf of those in need.

“When you find yourself in a position to help someone, you should be happy and feel blessed because God’s answering that person’s prayer through you.”

She is the founder, former President and Chairman of the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation, which she grew from a kitchen table concept into the world’s largest equine rescue organization. She is also the founder of various amateur baseball leagues, tournaments and training clinics, including the non-profit Atlantic Baseball Confederation Collegiate League (ABCCL). The New York Heart Association, St. Anthony’s Friars Foundation, Camp Quality for Kids with Cancer are just a very few of the many other charitable organizations and causes where her impact has been felt. And now, of course, there’s the Play for James Foundation, which she launched to commemorate and continue the work of her son James.

Always positive, a friend to all those she meets, whose passion for good is boundless and spirit of giving unquenchable, Monique is someone whose heart is not just in the right place, it’s everywhere. You will want to get to know her.
