Kahanowitz was an STX/NFHCA Division I Second Team All-American in 2002, her senior season in which she led the nation in goals (33) and points (72). Her final two seasons, she garnered STX/NFHCA Mideast Regional All-America First-Team honors while twice being named Patriot League Offensive Player of the Year and Tournament MVP. In 2002, she led Lafayette to a league title before playing California in an NCAA Play-In game. That followed a Patriot League championship in her freshman year of 1999.

The three-time All-Patriot League First Team selection and four-year starter led the 2002 team to a school and conference-record 19 consecutive victories and a national ranking that reached as high as No. 18. The team finished the season 19-3 and ranked No. 20.

Monahan was the winner of the Charles L. Albert ‘08 Award while also garnering recognition from the LVAIAW, ECAC, and the NFHCA Academic Team. She capped her career by participating in the NFHCA North/South Senior All-Star Game in 2002. Monahan still holds the Patriot League and Lafayette record for goals in a season (33 in 2002-tied with Suzi Farrell ’91) and points in a season (80 in 2002) while ranking first in the Patriot League for career points (160) and ninth in career assists (30).

Upon graduation, she served as an assistant coach at Colgate and West Chester before taking the head coaching position at Rosemont College. From 2010-12, she was the head coach/director of athletics at Albright College and left to become head coach of the United Field Hockey Club.
