Introducing Beach Club Member, Monica Simon. Monica is a Wealth Manager and Financial Advisor.

What does Beach Club membership mean to you?

It’s my home away from home when I need a breathe of fresh, clean air and simply want to escape and relax. I’ve only been a member since February, but I feel everyone knows me. It’s always a warm welcome. I look forward to saying hello to everyone when I’m there. That warm welcome makes me feel at home and makes my time there special.

Where are you from? How long have you been in Miami?

Originally born and raised in western Pennsylvania, a small town called New Castle. Moved to Miami just over 4 years ago after living in New York City for 15 years.

What charity closest to your heart?

I have enjoyed my involvement with several of the local charities here - United Way, Special Olympics of Miami-Dade and The Jax Foundation. Embracing the opportunity to have positive impact in someone’s life, when they really need is part of what makes life sweet and beautiful. 

What is your favorite local restaurant?

This is always a challenging question for me because my answer varies. My favorite go to spot to take out of town visitors is an afternoon cocktail or lunch outside, along the water at Smith & Wollensky. But You’ll always find me at Monty’s for a sunset or the Standard. Coming from NYC, I’m in love with anywhere I can drink & dine outside with a view. Though Milos is consistently delicious for a business lunch or nice dinner.

What is your favorite Miami happening?

Any time someone invites me on a boat, I’ll rarely say no. Seeing Miami from the water is a treat. While downtown is constantly changing and undergoing construction inland, the views along the Miami river and out at sea, I’ll take any day.

Beach or Pool?

I love the beach and the sound of the waves. There is nothing like a dip in the ocean to feel refreshed. But sometimes I’m content staring at the view from the pool.
