My name is Monale. You've reached my little corner of the internet where I share stories about work, life lessons, my reading list, and stories from Nigeria.

I'm a communications and marketing professional with proven experience working with nonprofits, higher education institutions, and the executive search industry.

Currently, I'm a marketing and IT specialist at Koya Leadership Partners, an executive recruiting firm that helps mission-driven organizations and universities find talented leaders. Prior to working in the executive search industry, I taught communication classes at Duquesne University. 

More About me

I am passionate about mission-driven work and making a difference.

Honing my craft is important to me. I stay learning, all day, every day.

Connecting people to opportunities and resources is my jam.

I serve as a mentor to young Nigerian professionals. Nothing makes me happier than when a mentee shares that our 1-1 strategy session helped land a job or an internship. Mission accomplished!

From 2013-2017, I co-managed the Philly Nigerian Professionals (PNP), a networking and go-to resource for African professional in the Philadelphia area. PNP showcased the numerous economic and philanthropic contributions of the African diaspora and created opportunities for members to give back by volunteering with nonprofits in the area.
