The Administrative & Professional Collaborative (APC) is the representative voice for the Administrative & Professional employees of FSCJ.
In an effort to build cohesiveness, awareness and collegiality, each month we put a “spotlight” on one of our members. February’s Administrative and Professional Collaborative spotlight shines on Dr. Monica M. Franklin, associate dean of career education/allied health and professional programs at North Campus.
Monica has worked at the College since 2008. She served as a professor of dental hygiene and as the faculty liaison for the School of Health Sciences before transitioning into her current position. Monica believes that “when you teach you learn, and when you learn you teach,” and she constantly strives to keep students actively engaged in the learning processes. She is considered a leader in multidisciplinary collaborations and interprofessional education.
Monica received her Associate in Science (A.S.) in dental hygiene from Florida Community College at Jacksonville in 2000 and her Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.S.) in dental hygiene from St. Petersburg College. She earned a Master of Health Science (M.H.S) with a concentration in higher education from Nova Southeastern University, where she also received a doctoral degree in health science.
Monica is blessed to have a supportive family which includes a husband, four children and one grandchild.
Our spotlight shines on each campus/center at least once a year. Nominations for the spotlight may be directed to your campus representative or any officer.
