Sonia serves as a Program Associate at Jaffe Management, working primarily with the New York State Podiatric Medical Association (NYSPMA). She fields member inquires and requests, handles membership communications, processes membership applications, manages the client’s website and database, and likes to use her background in visual arts to help design promotional materials.
Sonia grew up in the Washington D.C. area and earned her bachelor’s degree in International Relations and Studio Art at the College of William & Mary in Virginia. Her previous experience includes working as an ambassador for the Peace Corps, conflict-resolution/educational research in Bosnia & Herzegovina, adult ESL teaching for local immigrant communities, and other nonprofit work focusing on the themes of human trafficking, national security and rights/opportunities for members of the disabled community.
Sonia is loving the hustle and bustle of New York City after moving from a small colonial town but is also always on the lookout for weekend opportunities to escape the city and explore the wilderness surrounding NYC.
