Monica and I have known each other since college - but we truly became friends post-grad, where we had common ground as two of the very few beauty PRs to come out of Binghamton University. Monica currently works at Alison Brod Marketing + Communications with some brands you might recognize, including Bliss, IT Cosmetics, Lanolips, Nails.INC, and Saje.
