Field theory models of axion monodromy have been shown to exhibit vacuum energy sequestering as an emergent phenomenon for cancelling radiative corrections to the cosmological constant. We study one loop corrections to this class of models coming from virtual axions using a heat kernel expansion. We find that the structure of the original sequestering proposals is no longer preserved at low energies. Nevertheless, the cancellation of radiative corrections to the cosmological constant remains robust, even with the new structures required by quantum corrections.
