Mona L. Gibson, Immediate Past President

Mona was born and raised in the New York City area, moving to Tucson in 1978 with her family to attend the University of Arizona, where she obtained her Bachelor of Science in General Biology/Psychology, Masters of Science in Rehabilitation Counseling, and finally, an MBA with concentration in Human Resources and Marketing.

Mona worked as a Vocational Evaluator until spending 20 years in the Human Resources departments of Pima County and Tucson Unified School District, working most of that time in employment rights and benefits administration. Currently, she works for UnitedHealthcare as a Service Account Manager dedicated to the Arizona State Retirement System, assisting state retirees in enrolling and understanding their health insurance benefits.

In 1996, Mona married Scott Gibson and gave birth to their wonderful son, Michael, in 1999. Though Mona grew up in a spiritually Jewish family, she did not belong to any temple for an extended period until Michael decided he wanted to learn Hebrew in 2010. At Temple, Michael became a bar mitzvah in January 2012 and Mona became a bat mitzvah in May 2014.

Mona has served as chairperson of the Youth Education Committee, Temple Personnel Committee and First Vice President.
