Monaco grew up on the East Coast, where she participated in soccer, swimming, track and softball, among other sports. She's quite the athlete! Her family moved to Philly, after the last of five girls was born, opting for a quieter lifestyle. It was here that she participated intensely in speech, debate and theater during high school.
Monaco's television debut came in 1997, when she landed a recurring role on 'Baywatch'. She has since been in film, working in 'Idle Hands', and 'Mumford'.
Raised Roman Catholic, Monaco has a very close knit family. In her spare time, she enjoys volunteering for children's charity events, as well as working with elders.
She currently resides in West Hollywood, California.
