Moving to Aotearoa in 2012, Sonja took on the challenge of studying a Bachelor of Applied Sciences, majoring Environmental Management and Politics as a minor at Otago University in Ōtepoti. Sonja added on a GradDip in Teaching and worked as a teacher in Te Whanganui-a-Tara for a couple of years, before starting with CVNZ. As the Conservation Officer, Sonja organises local volunteer projects. She used to plant trees and do beach clean ups as a volunteer, now she’s organising these projects for CVNZ Wellington. Sonja is studying Te Reo Māori part time and practices yoga when not at work.
