Dr. Monique M. Chouraeshkenazi has recently been selected as Top Professor of the Year in National Security for 2020 by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP).
She is Founder & CEO of The Chouraeshkenazi Group, Chairwoman & Professor of National Security at the Daniel Morgan Graduate School of National Security, Creator & Writer for the Dr. Mo Show, Adjunct Professor for The George Washington University’s Graduate School of Political Management, Adjunct Professor for the School of Degree and Graduate Completion programs at Tiffin University, and Adjunct Professor at Southern New Hampshire University.
Unique, brilliant, and out of the box, are just some words that come to mind in speaking about Monique. With over a decade of professional experience as an executive and professor in higher education and over 17 years in the security field, Dr. Chouraeshkenazi has certainly proven herself as an accomplished professional. A dynamic and results-driven leader, she has demonstrated success, not only as an expert in her field, but in every position she has ever held. She authored the first collegiate textbook to integrate homeland and national security initiatives and global security complexities the American government faces. She also co-edited an anthology that emphasizes logical analysis and the scientific method, providing students ample opportunity to apply critical thinking skills to the examination of historical trends, ideologies, and motivation and recruitment. Monique was the first academic scholar to grace the cover of Oxford University Press's Elite Magazine "Special Edition" for "Tier of Excellence" for personal and professional development as an educator, entrepreneur, and leader in homeland and national security.
Her impressive repertoire of prior roles has included: United States Air Force Noncommissioned Officer for over 13 years, which includes being the Enlisted Military Assistant to former Defense Secretary, Dr. Ash Carter, and former Deputy Defense Secretaries Mr. Robert Work, and Ms. Christine Fox. She was the Associate Professor for the School of Security and Global Studies at American Military University, Lead Contributor for In Homeland Security News, Columnist for the PA Times Magazine, and Director of Veteran’s Affairs for the Lisa Project Leadership Training Center.
In 2014, Monique founded The Chouraeshkenazi Group (formerly known as MD Educational Consulting Firm), a consulting firm based in the Greater Washington DC area. The firm’s focus is centralized on the advanced analysis of security pedagogy, intelligence, R&D, and policymaking for homeland/national security and terrorism matters. Her academic website, The Dr. Mo Show, includes published scholarly articles in military, national and homeland matters, in addition to covering global and domestic current events.
Dr. Chouraeshkenazi earned a PhD in Public Policy and Administration with a specialization in Terrorism, Mediation, and Peace from Walden University. She also earned a Master of Science in Criminal Justice from Boston University, Bachelor of Arts in Homeland Security from American Military University, and an Associate of Applied Science in Information Management from the Community College of the Air Force. She is currently pursuing a Master of Arts in Psychology from American Military University. Monique is currently affiliated with Foreign Affairs Officer Association, Southwest Veterans’ Resource Business Center, American Society for Public Administration, Disabled American Veterans, and Wounded Warrior Project.
The President of IAOTP, Stephanie Cirami, stated, “Choosing Dr. Chouraeshkenazi for this award was an easy decision for our panel to make. She is brilliant and passionate at what she does, and incredibly humble. We felt she would make an amazing asset to our organization. We are looking forward to meeting her at the gala and know we will be seeing more amazing things from this woman.”
Throughout her illustrious career, Monique has received many awards, accolades, and has been featured in many publications for her outstanding leadership and commitment to the homeland security industry. For 2020, she is being considered for the Empowered Woman Award by the International Association of Top Professionals and to be featured in T.I.P. Magazine (Top Industry Professional Magazine). For her selection as Top Professor of the Year in National Security by IAOTP, she will be honored at the NYC Plaza Hotel. Additional career awards have included: VIP Executive of the Year, Woman of the Year, Top Tier Excellence Lifetime Achievement, and Top Pinnacle Professional Member. In the military, she received the Joint Commendation Service Medal, Air Force Commendation Medal, Afghanistan Campaign Medal, Air Force Expeditionary Medal with Bronze Star, North Alliance Treaty Organization Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Korean Defense Service Medal, Pacific Air Forces and 5th Air Force Enlisted Intelligence, Surveillance, & Reconnaissance Contributor of the Year, and the 18th Wing, Operations Group, and Support Squadron Noncommissioned Officer of the Quarter; just to name a few.
Looking back, Monique attributes her success to her military training, educational accomplishments, mentors she has had along the way, and her perseverance for staying passionate in all her professional endeavors. When she is not working, she enjoys spending time with her daughter, Araceli, working out, reading, writing, and traveling. For the future, she will continue to make a difference to protect this nation and advocated for her brothers and sisters in the U.S. Armed Forces.
While inclusion with the International Association of Top Professionals is an honor, only a few members in each discipline are chosen for this distinction. These special honorees are distinguished based on their professional accomplishments, academic achievements, leadership abilities, longevity in the field, other affiliations and contributions to their communities. All honorees are invited to attend the IAOTP’s annual award gala at the end of this year for a night to honor their achievements. www.iaotp.com/award-gala
