Sonia grew up working in her family’s business and experienced first-hand the dedication of her grandparents and parents to the employees of the company. It was at that early age that she discovered the incredible impact a good employer could have on a person’s life. The family business was sold as she completed her education, and she found her way into HR as a way to support business operations executives.
Sonia brings over 25 years of human resources experience to the Inspiring HR team. She has focused her consulting work in the areas of recruitment, onboarding, training, compliance, and compensation design. Sonia has supported clients across the United States and in all industries with a focus on Federal contractors. She has internal HR experience at a nationwide retailer where she guided associate relations and development, recruitment, and training for nearly 2500 employees and over 75 locations.
A skilled presenter, she engages audiences by facilitating sessions that include real-world examples and practical information. Sonia regularly speaks at industry meetings and gives back to the HR community by serving as a peer reviewer and faculty member with World at Work. Outside of HR, Sonia enjoys reading a good book, traveling to far-flung locales, long motorcycle trips, and spending time with her husband and two sons.
