Meet the District Governor Elect


Monika Fewtrell joined Rotary 2001 thanks to her husband Dean, past president and Area Representative. Monika has held several Club roles: Newsletter Editor 2002-2005, awarded Rotarian of the Year 2004-05, Club Treasurer 2006-2009, Club President 2010-11, Assistant Governor 2012–14, District Representative New Club 2023-15(RC Salinas Santa Lucia), District Grants Chair and Trainer for CLTA and District Conferences. She and Dean also sponsored a Youth Exchange from Taiwan. Monika is a Benefactor, Paul Harris +2 and EREY. She has sponsored five members.

Dean and Monika have been married since 1989. Monika states Dean has one big flaw…he does not laugh spontaneously with sincerity at her puns. Even though he has heard the same puns for all these years, her expectations of laughter still hold. (You can hear Dean groaning in the background.) Monika and Dean love to rescue labs. Monika enjoys piano and singing.

Monika’s career background has been in business, administration and leadership training. She retired 2005. She has a BA in Music and Fine Arts and then studied business at Chico State University. Her activities include being a founding member of the Boys and Girls Club of Salinas serving on the Board as Treasurer and Secretary. Monika was also a founding member and served four years as President of Kinship Support Unlimited that supports Kinship Center serving children that have been abused and abandoned to find safe and loving permanent forever families.

She is honored and excited to serve the great Rotarians of District 5230.
