I moved from Cleveland to Hollywood for one reason: to become an actress. I had no idea I would also become a producer, entrepreneur, funny woman, tear-jerker, host, designer, decorator, builder, creator, cook, homemaker, and my personal favorite—mom. And I owe it all to following my dream. So I hope you enjoy this page dedicated to my work. And please stay tuned to learn more about my future projects.

From executive producers Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, Jason Katims and Lawrence Trilling, “Parenthood” is the critically acclaimed one-hour drama inspired by the box office hit of the same name. This reimagined and updated Universal Television/Imagine Entertainment production follows the trials and tribulations of the very large, colorful and imperfect Braverman family. Monica is distinctly identified by her portrayal of Kristina Braverman on all six seasons. Her emotional performance led to a 2014 Golden Globe nomination, a 2013 Critic’s Choice Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama, and a TCA Award nomination for Individual Achievement in Drama.
