Sonia grew up in the suburbs and has lived in Chicago for the past 5 years. For as long as she can remember, she has been passionate about theatre, fashion, art, and music. While studying business and fashion at Columbia College, Sonia developed a special interest in sustainable practices within the fashion industry. She was an event marketing assistant at Tulia's Artisan Gallery, a fair trade business dedicated to empowering women and celebrating sustainable practices in art and fashion. She embraced her role at festivals and fair trade events that supported the causes she believed in.
Sonia also worked as a bartender for Choice Events at Soldier Field, Rosemont Theater, concerts, and sporting events. Sonia furthered her career in the fashion industry as a marketing and business intern for Le Chic, and as a personal stylist at Trunk Club. Eventually, she decided to focus on her event experience which led her to the Ravenswood team. Sonia enjoys traveling, music festivals, and cooking (especially eating what she makes!). She also loves challenging outdoor sports and recreation - including wilderness camping, surfing, skiing and hiking.
