In the Business of Happiness

Apr 21, 2020 – Capital Regional Vice President Monica Monroe is the founder and owner of Monica Elizabeth Events, a full-service event coordination and planning company, focusing on weddings.

Her company is based in the Maryland, Washington D.C. and Virginia areas - roughly the same area Monica oversees as a Deltasig leader. 

Monroe, Shepherd (WV), knew from age 16 she wanted to eventually work in the industry during an event planning class in high school. "I immediately started to look at fostering my passion with a degree or certification. At sixteen, I was on the phone with institutes getting information about classes I could attend." She carried her passion through college, taking classes concentrating in hospitality, recreation, business and entrepreneurship. After graduation, while working for a local catering company, Monroe met her mentor and then boss Matthew Phelan who encouraged her to launch her business.

With a passion for helping others and swearing by the Theodore Roosevelt quote "Nobody cares how much you know until they know how much you care," Monica credits the Fraternity with life lessons she carried with her throughout her business. "The most important lesson I've learned is to have patience with yourself and with other people. I remind myself I am doing the best I can and that is enough!"

A creator of all things joyous, Monroe finds motivation in the happy moments. "One of the most rewarding things about what I do is I get to be a part of creating and executing some of the biggest life celebrations my clients have." A leader in not only the Fraternity, but in the business world, she is a pro at handling stress. "I am typically interacting with clients during the height of what is one of the most stressful times in their lives. Rather than get offended or act in an unprofessional way, I deal with the situation and move past it. Life is too short to let a stressed client ruin my love for what I do!"
