Our Team

Monica Glasscock, Program Coordinator: Communications & Operations (she/her, they/them)

I grew up in small town Georgia, the epitome of the Deep South, with its Live Oak trees dripping Spanish moss. During my undergrad, I majored in art. Later, I became passionate about art history and decided to enroll in grad school. I left the country for the first time at 23, ready to start over in London. The theories used to analyze art also illuminated the world around me and showed how forces like race, class, gender, etc., shape our lives. Living and studying in London taught me so much, but one thing I didn’t expect was to meet my partner there. So, after graduation, we started down the winding road of a long-distance relationship, moving to Portland, visa sponsorship, and finally, a green card.

Growing up working class, much of my life has been spent making ends meet, but now I find myself in a position of privilege with the ability to give back. Moving into the nonprofit sector was a conscious choice, and I’m excited to be a part of JVC Northwest and use my experiences to help create a more equitable society.

As an introvert, I prefer to live my values in quiet ways. I practice yoga, reconnect through time spent in nature, and lose myself to the flow of painting as a conduit for the creative force. A total bookworm and nerd, I love to read and listen to podcasts and constantly try to learn something new. Recently, I have been focused on learning about Animist traditions, world mythologies, and eco-feminism. I love finding new music and listening to old favorites, especially in the kitchen, where you can find me cooking, baking, and often dancing at the same time.
