Sonia is a graduate student in Psychology at Monash University in Melbourne (Australia). Having completed both a Master of Applied Positive Psychology (University of Melbourne) and Master of Coaching Psychology (University of Sydney), Sonia has a love of learning and is passionate about supporting people to achieve their goals, drive positive change and maximise their potential. As the mother of a young child, she is inherently interested in child development and family flourishing - with a view to working in this area once she has achieved her psychology registration.
After a 15-year corporate career, Sonia is enjoying applying her experience leading and inspiring teams to her role in SIPPA. Sonia's goal as President (IPPA - Student Division) is to cultivate a global network of supportive and collaborative students who can learn from each other and the broader positive psychology community.
