  • Monica Mendoza

    Executive Director

Monica Mendoza is the Executive Director of Jolkona. Three years ago Monica introduced herself to Jolkona after seeing a campaign we featured to benefit Bolivia, her native country. Over the past few years she has volunteered with Jolkona and joined us for the very first public Jolkona expedition to West Africa.

Monica brings over 15 years of business and leadership experience in a career that has been focused on technology with roles in IT, Sales, and Marketing. Monica has also dedicated much of her time and skills to various nonprofits in the Seattle area most recently serving on the board of MIT Enterprise Forum of the Northwest. She even ran a successful personal campaign to raise funds for Haiti earthquake victims in 2010. She has taken every opportunity to travel and this has led to her profound appreciation for the customs and languages of other cultures and the desire to exchange ideas and experiences with other countries
