Late at night and on weekends, the MTA stores subway trains underground in NYC in dedicated subway yards, express tracks, abandoned or never completed routes.

I've met many who now live on the beautiful coasts, yet still hold a dear place for Tucson, in their hearts.

Story
Tagline
Tucson Writer
Introduction
I'm Monica Surfaro Spigelman, an Arizona-based writer, editor, marketer, PR professional and free lancer who also loves to sew, quilt, embroider and craft lovely eco-friendly things here in the Sonoran Desert.

I moved to the Southwest in 2005 after a successful, 25-year career in NYC-based corporate communications and nonprofit management. For United Parcel Service, I traveled internationally and produced a variety of global employee communications programs. As Communications Vice President for nonprofit Keep America Beautiful, I managed a comprehensive editorial, marketing and public relations program while supporting the development efforts of this national organization.

Here in the Southwest via Tucson Cowgirl Communications  I am a writer and editor on topics ranging from entrepreneurship, the environment and logistics, to nonprofit, fiber arts and community revitalization.  I also
blog as Tucson Cowgirl.

I look forward to putting my passion to work for you — whether that be for your business or for your interest in my crafts.
