Sonia works as a designer and researcher in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, doing co-creation projects for social impact. She has lived for 11 years in the UK, where she worked as a Senior Service Designer and Project lead for the non profit organisation Innovation Unit and then as freelancer, leading projects for a wide variety of clients, like Guy's & St. Thomas' charity, Lankelly Chase, NHS, the National Trust, the Soil Association and Apart of Me. In 2023 Sonia co-founded the non-profit organisation The Firefly Project, which aims to improve the experience of children and young people dealing with loss by delivering proactive grief education.
