We are thrilled to announce that Sonia Chapin has joined us to support our client base in the DC/MD market!
Our search for our next team member in the DC/MD area may have taken a bit longer than usual, but timing is sometimes everything. Sonia has been a truly wonderful addition to our team. She embodies of our vision of HR Done Differently, and then some.
On paper you will see that Sonia completed her undergraduate studies summa cum laude, attained her Master’s Degree in Organizational Psychology and has over 25 years of experience and is senior level HR certified; SPHR, SHRM-SCP and CCP (Certified Compensation Professional).
But prior life experience, not just education or business experience, tends to shape how we work. This is certainly true for Sonia. Her time working in her family’s small business as a teen gave her an early understanding of the entrepreneurial spirit, and the joys and challenges associated with. Her pride in building great relationships with customers likely came from their kindness as many offered to help her with her homework!
Take those experiences, Sonia’s clear love of lifelong learning, her time working as a regional HR Associate in retail and then 20+ years in HR Consulting and you an HR professional who can easily relate and empathize with employees, leaders and business owners. She sees how to build bridges and strives to find win-win solutions.
Sonia has been with us a little less than 30 days and it feels like it has been longer for all the right reasons. She makes us better and we all love working with her. For those current and future clients that will have Sonia as their primary HR Consultant we know they will be as happy with her as we are.
