Monique also referred to by most people as Mo recently graduated in May 2010 with a B.A. in Kinesiology from Whittier College. She has grown up and stayed in Whittier, California most of her life, it is where many things began for her and she has experienced many accomplishments while living there. Monique has many things in her life that she is proud of, including but not limited to, her wonderful boyfriend and two crazy dogs Barry, a Shepherd mix and Shasta, the Husky. While having a vast variety of things she enjoys if Monique could do anything, she has narrowed it down to just two things, she would immerse herself in the arts,specifically painting and dancing. She developed a love for art, focusing on painting and drawing, at an early age and rediscovered her love for these avenues of expression in college. While she enjoys creating pieces, dance stole her heart in high school. Through exposure to various styles she discovered tap dancing and fell in love with everything about that form of movement. When not creating or dancing Monique can be found studying the complexities of make-up and how it affects not only aesthetically but emotional as well, trying dishes from various world cultures, and spending hours immersed in her Kindle Fire while snuggling her “security blanket” Lars, and enjoying a coffee from Starbucks. Through a friendship with Brittany that developed in high school and flourished thanks to Facebook Monique became involved with W.E.L.L. Despite being located in California she believes in W.E.L.L.’s mission and strives to help anyway she can.

Rayven was introduced to Brittany through a mutual friend shortly before the conception of W.E.L.L. As a surprise and a show of support after Brittany shared her plans to start W.E.L.L.; Rayven comprised the original website and has worked behind the scenes ever since maintaining the website and working to expand W.E.L.L. online presence. When not handling W.E.L.L. business she can be found either cuddling on the couch with her husband and children, working on her magazine, or blogging about homeschooling, parenting, atheism, and politics. In a world where she could go anywhere, do anything, and meet anyone Rayven thinks it would be a fabulous idea to sit on the moon one cosmic afternoon having tea with Gandhi discussing mankind and frivolous items such as favorite foods.
