KIM MONIQUE PIMENTEL
In 2004, Monique’s entrepreneurial flair first became evident when she founded and became CEO of 911 Staffing (a job-placement agency for Registered Nurses within Los Angeles). After negotiating contracts with California Medical Center, Healthcare Partners Medical Group, Century City Hospital, and other private nursing agencies, the business was eventually sold to Apple One (which is currently the biggest staffing company in America).
In addition to her career-related pursuits, Monique has also demonstrated an acute sense of philanthropy, having served as an active donor to various orphanages, churches, and schools. Moreover, as a proud native of the Philippines, Monique also organizes the distribution of food for the handicapped and homeless citizens within her city of origin during each Christmas season (a tradition that was started by her father many years ago).
In recent years , she helped in the distribution of food for the homeless and took the lead role of the project Back to School Backpacks for the less privileged children in LA. She was awarded Phenomenal Woman of the year Award by Los Angeles Mayor Garcetti.
In recent years, she has also become involved in the film industry, having been an executive producer on both feature and independent film productions (some of which have won awards in the US and Europe). She has attended several International Film Festivals, AMFAR Galas, the Oscars, EMMY and numerous black tie events all over the world.
