Hi, I’m Sonia!

It's nice to meet you 🙂

Howdy! I’m originally from San Antonio, TX, and received my Bachelor of Arts degree in speech communication and journalism from Sam Houston State University! Go Bearkats! While there, I met my husband and followed him to his first duty station at Ft. Bragg, NC. Fayetteville quickly became my second home and I loved working for the local Chamber of Commerce as the events manager.

My husband was transferred to Ft. Lewis, WA in 2011. Despite the rain, the Pacific Northwest has proven to have a ton to offer. I worked at United Way of Tacoma until 2013 when our son was born. I am working from home as a freelance writer and recently finished my master’s degree in nonprofit management (woohoo)!

When I’m not volunteering with local groups or helping plan events, I enjoy freelance writing, traveling, trying new foods, spending time with friends and family…and being a MOM!
