Master of Architecture, WAAC at Virginia Tech

Bachelor of Science in Architecture, University of Minnesota

From a young age, Sonja was interested in creating and building things with her hands—there were never enough cardboard boxes to stack or play in—and it eventually steered her towards pursuing architecture as a career. As a graduate of Virginia Tech’s Washington Alexandria Architecture Center, she’ll be working with our housing team on the Libbie Mill Harper’s Landing project. Sonja is originally from Bethesda where she grew up playing ice hockey (a hobby she still enjoys today) and spending a lot of time out in her barn with the horses. Now she’s eager to get to know the real DC and its various neighborhoods, outside the federal landscape.
