Mona was born in Finland, raised in the town of Mount Forest, Ontario, and started dancing before she had even learned English. She has always been passionate about musical theatre, and began going to summer drama camps at the age of six. Her dance training in ballet, modern, jazz and tap continued from the age of four, all the way through high school and beyond. She has a background in classical voice training and received her Level 8 Certificate of Achievement from the Royal Conservatory of Music. Growing up she also appeared in musicals including Sound of Music, Legally Blonde, Anne of Green Gables, and Bye Bye Birdie.
Mona moved to Toronto in 2014 to attend Randolph College for the Performing Arts, where she graduated from in 2016. Since then she has been featured in Disney’s The Little Mermaid, and Disney’s Beauty and the Beast (Lower Ossington Theatre), and toured Canada coast to coast as The Little Mermaid, performing for young audiences. She continues to train in all three disciplines – singing, dancing and acting – and is actively working in the entertainment community in Toronto.
Mona is very excited to be a part of the Harmony team, and to have the opportunity to share her love of song and dance with the next generation!
