Mona established a solo orthodontic practice in Newport, Rhode Island where she pursued her passion for sailing and body surfing. She moved to North Conway, New Hampshire when her interest turned to rock climbing.
During a ski trip with her husband to Chamonix, France, Mona realized a need for a ski hat that was functional as well as fashionable. She started and is Owner/Queen of Choucas Hats, a company that designs, manufactures, and distributes performance head and neck wear for aerobic cold weather activities.
Mona started taking violin lessons at Mountain Top as an adult beginner, worked her way through the beginner adult ensemble, and now plays both violin and oboe in the Mountain Top Community Orchestra. She joined the Board as a Trustee in 2009 because she wanted to be a voice for the actual music students. She serves on the Concert Committee as the liaison for the Mountain Top Community Orchestra.
