With pride in her heart, Monika opened Thrive to make the world a healthier place. She is known about town for possessing a kind and genuine soul, and for sharing her smile and warm embrace with all she comes in contact with. With two masters degrees under her belt, she opened Thrive four years ago, leaving behind a (blazing) career in law enforcement. As her business flourishes she feels grateful for every one that has helped make Thrive a success – her mom, her team and her community, of course. A brilliant woman, with a bright future, Monika looks to the coming years with hope in her eyes. She desires to open Thrive locations around world, and soon, everyone will have access to all the fresh coconut water and marinated kale they can get their hands on. Until then, let us thrive on here in Seattle. And let us be thankful.
