Director of Creative Services
As director of creative services, Monique provides resource management for the creative and production departments and their support teams. A self-proclaimed extreme extrovert, Monique was drawn to advertising at a young age: She majored in it in college and became a project manager after an internship at DDB Needham in Washington, D.C. Her first account after moving to San Francisco was, fittingly, Rice-A-Roni. She’s since worked at many top boutique agencies (including Wieden+Kennedy, Goodby Silverstein & Partners, and Fallon) and on countless brands. Her passion project, ADEPT Creative Project Management, is a workshop she developed to train project managers to be successful in agency environments.
How one person can swing all of this is a mystery—until you meet Monique.
“Things don’t happen in a linear fashion in advertising, so you need to be flexible and agile—but also rigid where it matters.” In other words, “making room for messiness” leads to a productive, successful creative department. She also rescues cattle dogs. “They’re the project managers of the dog world. They just can’t help themselves.”
