PCA Staff

Sonja joined PCA in 2005 and is our Director of Training Operations as part of the Training Team. She is responsible for overseeing all 3000+ workshop assignments nationwide and supporting PCA’s Trainer Corps of 200 trainers. Sonja makes sure all of our trainers have what they need and feel well taken care of in order to facilitate the best workshops possible.

A graduate of the Free University Berlin with a Masters in American History & Politics and a master’s in mass communication science, it was during a scholarship stint at American University in Washington, DC, that Sonja secured a job in television, which led her to relocate to the United States permanently in 2001. She has since then lived in Washington, DC and San Francisco, CA before landing in beautiful (small town) Santa Cruz, CA.

In her youth, Sonja rode horses, did ballet, dance, volleyball, and trampoline. Upon her move to California, she became an avid surfer (she met her husband Ryan surfing). Together, they own an outpatient Physical Therapy clinic as well as an adjoined CrossFit gym and are the parents of two kids, Milena and Max.
