Senior Trainer Manager
Sonja joined PCA in October of 2005 and is our Senior Trainer Manager as part of the Training Team. She is responsible for overseeing all workshop assignments nationwide and supporting PCA’s Trainer Corps. Sonja makes sure all of our trainers have what they need, know what to do and are well taken care of in order to present the best live workshops possible. Sonja also organizes the bi-annual Trainer’s Institute Retreat weekend.
A graduate of the Free University Berlin with a Masters in American History & Politics and a Master 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.
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 now own DeWitt Physical Therapy as well as an adjoined CrossFit gym and are the parents of two kids, Milena and Max.
