She is a Domestic Violence Treatment Advocate and Program Director at the Haseya Advocate Program (https://www.haseya.org/) where she provides Native-specific advocacy for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking. She is a certified Domestic Violence Tribal Advocate and a Sexual Assault Tribal Advocate through the National Tribal Training Institute. She manages Piath Ket Naa Nath, the Indigenous Healing Garden, which is a unique program to help Indigenous survivors of violence heal and build resiliency by connecting to cultural traditions and land-based teachings. Monycka sits on the Colorado Springs All Advocacy Steering Committee, the Advisory Team of the Sexual Violence Prevention Taskforce for the State of Colorado, is a co-chair for the Health & Wellness Committee for the Colorado Commission of Indian Affairs, the Native Advisory Council of El Pomar’s Emerging Leaders Development program, and is on the board of directors for Food to Power, formerly the Colorado Springs Food Rescue. She, like most advocates, went into this field of work due to her own experiences as both a DV and SA survivor.
