Prior to moving to California, Mona was the Senior Health Policy Advisor to US Senator Barbara Mikulski as well as Staff Director for the US Senate Subcommittee on Children and Families, Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions. Mona drafted several sections of the Affordable Care Act, including sections on health care quality, patient safety, women’s health, and health care workforce.

Mona earned her JD with a Certificate of Concentration in Health Law from the University of Maryland School of Law.
