vegan kids

Hi, I'm Doctor Monica.

I'm a board certified pediatrician, full time mom, wife and vegan athlete. Committing to a vegan lifestyle in 2015 completely changed my life. I have watched my husband age backwards (no kidding), and raising two plant-based littles has just been the best! 

I created Mighty Roots to share the joy I have experienced as a mom, the wellness I have enjoyed as a long-time vegan, and the expertise I have gained from my career in Pediatrics. 

I spent the first 5 years of my career in a busy Pediatric Emergency Department where I saw it ALL. So many of the health issues facing our kids today can be prevented or significantly improved by simple lifestyle changes, that don't have to be complicated! 

With the right information and support, a plant-based lifestyle can work for ANYONE! If you're ready for better health, freedom from frequent illness, and a fresh sense of purpose in your parenting, I am here to help you.
