Deiona Monroe

Philadelphia Office Coordinator

In any role, my goal is always to help people and keep things in order. I’m lucky enough to bring these values and organization to First Round as Office Coordinator in Philadelphia. I spend my days aiding members of the team here as much as I can.

Before First Round, I was a team lead for Saxbys Coffee at Temple University. I loved that environment and team so much, I never thought I’d find an opportunity to rival it. Of course—after joining First Round—I knew I was mistaken. From day one, I was impressed by the warmth and genuineness demonstrated by all First Rounders. .

I came to Philadelphia to attend Temple University and graduated with a degree in Political Science and a minor in Criminal Justice. Born and raised in New York City, I questioned whether Philadelphia would live up to my “big city” expectations. I’m happy to say it has. When I’m not working, I always have my notebook out and often add new stories and adventures to my website. My pen never sleeps.
