Meet Daisy Monterroso of Monterroso Integrative Services in Miami-Dade and Broward County

Today we’d like to introduce you to Daisy Monterroso.

Daisy, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I began working in Behavior Analysis in a research lab at the University of Florida and here is where I truly fell in love. The science behind helping others intrigued me and I desired to become a Behavior Analyst. I knew that my career was a lot like falling in love, it was something I had to learn and consistently pursue deeper in order to fall more and more in love with a what I’d spend my days doing. I completed my Masters in Mental Health Counseling and continued on to pursue my Doctorate in Marriage and Family Therapy. Though these fields were quite different, I had a desire in my heart to use my education to help families in a different way.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Since beginning my Bachelors, I always knew what I wanted and each year would allow for more clarity. I think what allowed this process go smoothly was my openness to allow my ideas to change and grow throughout time. However, this was not a smooth road. Though, I took little to no breaks in between schooling, I had always worked 1-2 full-time jobs. I always tell others, “Know your good and know how you can grow, for when your good is questioned, you can feel stable.” I believe the struggle along the way has been trusting my process and trusting my passions. I’ve been lucky enough to have a strong support group around me, reminding me that my passions can shine if I allow them. I’m grateful for my support, and it has been an integral part to getting me get to where I am today!

We’d love to hear more about your business.

What were you like growing up?
I was quite interesting growing up. I’ve always been known as the “talker,” or “jokester” who can be quite the entertainer in the group. I’ve always enjoyed interacting with others, serving at my church and pursuing my career. I’ve always been adventurous and found joy in traveling to multiple cities and countries throughout the years as well. If I was described by others, they may describe me as “goofy” often. I’ve been very career driven for many years now, but have taken a bigger interest in my faith for the last year or so. My faith is important to me because, I know that’s God’s plans for MIS Therapy is bigger than anything I could come up with.
