Mónti is short for montañita, or "little mountain" in Spanish. My family is from the central and southern Andes regions of South America, the longest mountain range on earth, and I believe the natural world is an excellent model for creating strong foundations, generating positive growth, and achieving sustainable cycles.
At my core identity, I’m a builder. I help technical experts and diverse teams come together to bring a common vision to life. My career in the nonprofit world prepared me well for the construction field. All this time, I have been embodying project management frameworks, values, and practices without the proper terminology or support - until now. I have had to find and create solutions to complex real world, high-stakes problems, requiring advanced skills in analysis, planning, scheduling, documentation, and most importantly, communication and collaboration.
Construction projects in the United States are currently up to 50% inefficient, facing immense ecological change, and severely lacking diversity and youth to lead innovation efforts. I feel called to tackle these challenges in an industry that is foundational to a resilient society with my unique background, talents and perspectives as we see significant change over the next two decades due to increased demand, and the impact of new technologies.
