Monique Degraffenreid

Staff Assistant

Monique is the first smiling face you'll see when you arrive at SSRI. She assists with the Connection Café tasks, keys, Tom's schedule, and other tasks that keep the Institute running smoothly.

Her background includes: Wellness Coach at Cary Family YMCA (American College of Sports Medicine certified Health Fitness Specialist), customer service (waiting tables), and East Carolina University grad, B.S. in Exercise Physiology.

Monique's passion is playing lacrosse. She started playing when she was 13 and over the years became a talented player. She played at a division 3 university in Virginia before transferring to ECU, where she met some of her best friends. You can still find Monique on the field, playing with other post-collegiate women.

Monique is currently taking evening classes in hopes of entering an accelerated nursing program to obtain a BSN. She then hopes to get a Master’s degree in Public Health or Health Care Administration.
