That's a Wrap on Toronto!

September 12, 2021

My time shooting in Toronto has come to an end for now, and we will soon be headed to New Orleans to continue shooting Five Days at Memorial.

Recently, Hurricane Ida took its toll on Louisiana; in lieu of traditional wrap gifts, our production made a contribution to aid organizations in the greater New Orleans area.

Monica joins cast of Apple TV's FIVE DAYS AT MEMORIAL

August 3. 2021

I'm joining John Ridley and Carson Cuse's limited series, FIVE DAYS AT MEMORIAL, and I am pinching myself. Based on Sheri Fink's book of the same name, the series chronicles the dire events at New Orleans' Memorial Hospital, in the days after Hurricane Katrina. Having family who rode out the storm and lost their home in Katrina, this project means the world to me.

I'm outside Erie, Pennsylvania for most of August, working on the indie horror feature, UNEARTH. John Lyons directs, and the team is stellar. I'm pinching myself.

Working alongside Freida Pinto in THE PATH

I'm proud of my scene in episode 309 of THE PATH (Hulu).  I was lucky to work with Freida Pinto, who was a kind and generous scene partner.


Leading Role in HOLY NIGHT film

January 24, 2018

I just worked with director Casey Stein on HOLY NIGHT, a powerful film about opioid addiction in America. I play Nadine, a determined woman doing what's best for her family, in spite of debilitating pain and a life ruined by addiction to pain medication.

Rita Returns for a Sixth Episode of THE PATH

November 17, 2017

It was such fun to return as Rita Laslen for the final episode of Season Two of THE PATH.  We froze our tushies off, but the night ended with hugs all around. (And don't let Aaron Paul get hold of your phone!)


The 5th Time's a charm. Back to THE PATH!

September 26, 2017

THE PATH keeps getting better and better.  "Rita Laslen" was back for a 5th episode, this time opposite Freida Pinto.  The whole cast and crew always makes me feel welcome.


MARS web series with Scott Adsit

September 1, 2017

That's a wrap on MARS, the hilarious web series from Nick Weiss-Richmond and Micah Paisner.  Largely improvised and completely hilarious! Working alongside Scott Adsit and Leslie Meisel was a treat.

Hanging with Super Heroes

November 2016

Shhhh. I got to work on a super-secret (that is, if you live under a rock) Netflix show about some beloved and well-known super heroes. S.J. Clarkson directed the episode, and she was great- strong and creative, kind and funny...just a wonderful model for women in the film and TV industry. My scene involved some intense work from the steadicam operator- he was the hero of the day, for sure. I'm looking forward to seeing the episode (Ep 101) sometime in 2017!

Recurring Role on Hulu's THE PATH

October 2016

It was a great surprise to book a recurring role on Season 2 of THE PATH. Aaron Paul is as wonderful and kind as you think he is, and made everyone, including newcomers like me, feel welcome. Season 2 of THE PATH premieres January 25th on Hulu. Look for me in episodes 212 and 213. And fingers crossed for Season 3!
