Monica Surfaro Spigelman is a boomer who left East Coast big city life three years ago to settle in the southwest. She wanted to touch the earth instead of watching it pass by her skyscraper window. Surrounded by “sky island” mountain ranges, national parks, Native American reservations and the Sonoran Desert, Tucson was a perfect choice. Monica feels much at home in this diverse place, where nature, art, culture and Western tradition connect.
Monica is an experienced journalist, corporate communications executive and researcher who also is a former officer of national non-profit Keep America Beautiful. She currently serves as Webmaster and Communications Director for a local professional association and she manages a marketing communications consulting business via her Tucson Cowgirl website http://www.tucsoncowgirl.com
