What makes you interesting? I have been a professional host, singer, and actress for 14 years. I used to do stunt shows and ride a bull. I backpacked around Europe. I lived in Nashville to sing and write country music. I teach line dancing. I now host my own adventure show, Monica Goes. I love hiking, camping, traveling, and trying new adventures.

If your personality was a city or country, what would it be? Definitely America! I’m loud, ambitious, love road trips and national parks as well as dreaming big.

What item will you never leave home without?  My phone because I record all of my shows on it.

What have you learned about yourself during your travels? I’m stronger and more capable than I imagined and don’t need to wait for people to go and that people are amazing everywhere.

If you were given a free trip tomorrow, where would you go? Either Banff National Park in Canada, Alaska or Iceland. Basically anywhere with pretty snowy mountains and adventure.

What is your favorite travel memory? Probably making it to the top of Angels Landing because I have a huge fear of heights and that was quite the accomplishment.

Next travel destination: New Orleans to shoot a Halloween episode.
