Monique Caraballo

she/her Creator of blk grrl kicks

Hailing from Central New York, Monique has been a sneaker geek since she was a teenager.

In addition to creating blk grrl kicks, Monique has worked in communications and marketing for over a decade. She loves hula hooping, hiking, gardening, photography, and music. She is vehemently anti-pants, and you’ll never find her in a pair of heels, because she can’t walk in them.

They also demanded to be included.
