Every day is something new!
One constant factor throughout Sonia’s life has been continuous learning and evolving.
Sonia has called the Pacific Northwest home for almost 30 years. Born and raised in Bolivia, South America, she moved to the United States to finish school and later started a family. Sonia has been fortunate to live in various states within the United States, including North Carolina, Florida, and Illinois, before eventually making a home here in Edmonds.
From the moment she stared her 30-year career, working for a Fortune 100 company, Sonia knew she wanted to help others. With much of her time in Human Resources, she was able to leverage her ability to understand and relate to people. This experience has helped shape her outlook in life and keeps her focused on always helping others.
She also spent several years in private counseling practice, counseling people after the loss of loved ones. Both experiences helped shape her core organizational, communication, and problem-solving characteristics that have served her well in any role she’s taken on, inside and outside of a career environment.
When Sonia decided to retire from corporate life, she was determined to find ways to use her smile, skills and freedom to still give back to others in the community.
Taking some time to relax and reflect on what makes her happiest, she decided that helping people remains one of her core motivations and became determined to find ways in which to leverage her strengths in the community.
