Monica has been apart of the Taste of Tejano crew since 2018. After her mother, Viviana Frias-Medellin, retired from the show in December 2019, Monica became one of the co-hosts alongside Tommy Andrade.
In addition to Taste of Tejano, Monica works full-time as a Project Manager at The University of Kansas Health System. She enjoys art, live music, live theater, volunteering at the food kitchen frequently, and being a eucharistic minister and lector at Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church. She also enjoys spending time with her partner, Corey, and her children.
