She was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan and attended the High School of Commerce, a business high school located in Detroit. Later, she earned a degree in Computer Information Systems and a Master's in Human Resources. Currently, she is married with two children. Her husband joins her each year at the state conference to volunteer.

Monique also has a strong history within Michigan BPA. She first joined BPA due to her plans to become an accountant. From there, she rose to serve the great state of Michigan as Secondary Level President.

Currently, she serves Michigan BPA as the State Officer Coordinator. She describes her work responsibilities as “to guide the state officers throughout their term into making decisions that will impact the Michigan membership in a positive manner.” In addition to this, she also communicates with local chapters, ensuring information is shared with the members. She says her most memorable moment from her time in the position was “a couple of years ago when the state officer team took charge and accomplished every goal they set in the Program of Work. It made me so proud!”

Besides her work, Monique is also highly dedicated to her family. She loves to spend spare time with and be around them. This year, the Callahan family visited a couple of different areas in Michigan and explored Boyne Mountain and Traverse City.

Some fun facts about her are: Her bucket list includes to one day stay in an underwater hotel. And if there was one super power, she could have it would be to read minds. 

We hoped you enjoyed learning about a member of the MIBPA family. Monique is an awesome person that, just from this article, you have probably already began to like. If you ever see her at a Leadership Conference or other BPA event, make sure you ask her if she’s made it to that underwater hotel!
