Mona grew up in small town Southwest Louisiana where her family always had music playing on the radio or record player – and everyone danced. After Urban Cowboy came out, she learned to two-step at a local country bar where she met an instructor named Rody. She and Rody started seeing each other frequently and while Rody taught lessons Mona learned to deejay. After getting married in April of 1986, Mona and Rody began taking dance lessons and competing together. At their first regional event in 1990, they heard about the UCWDC. Little did they know while competing within the UCWDC circuit how many friends they would make and how their lives would be changed forever. Mona stopped competing but began to deejay at numerous UCWDC events. In 1996, she deejayed for the first time at the UCWDC World Championships and has since become an integral member of the Worlds contest deejay staff. Mona is a 4- time Star Award Winner for Favorite Deejay, a UCWDC Director’s Choice recipient, and the first deejay inducted to the UCWDC Hall of Fame.
