Sonya (or Sonj) grew up in Squamish, a very small town which at one time had only one street light and no fast food restaurants!
Since adopting her son, who was born without the muscle in his eyelid, Sonya became interested in optometry, as it offers her the chance to do what she loves – to help people. Sonya has also opened her heart and home to 17 foster children over the past 10 years!
In her spare time, Sonya likes to read, bake and sew (she earned a college scholarship for her outstanding sewing skills!). Sonya loves to play with her dogs, Lily and Frankie and her birds Lucy and Ricky. She also enjoys the laid-back pace of life on Vancouver Island.
