Sonja grew up in the suburbs of Minneapolis, Minnesota and after many years of competitive Irish dance she was motivated to work in the field of physical therapy. She received her Associates degree as a Physical Therapist Assistant from Anoka-Ramsey Community College in 2018. She worked for two years for a short-term rehab care facility in south Minneapolis, then returned to school to finish her Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science at Dordt University in Sioux Center, Iowa. After graduating in spring of 2022, she and her husband Joseph relocated to the Austin area.
Sonja is passionate about her role in helping individuals reach their personal goals with physical therapy and loves watching her patients’ confidence grow through the rehabilitation process. She enjoys coming up with creative ways to make PT fun and finds it an incredibly rewarding field of work.
Outside the clinic, Sonja enjoys teaching Irish dance, reading, crocheting, listening to music & podcasts, playing the piano, watching sports, staying in touch with her friends and family back in the Midwest, working out, and exploring the Austin area with her husband.
