Sonja has been in the beauty industry for 25 years working as a hair designer, salon owner, platform artist/educator, makeup artist and esthetician. As much as she enjoyed her years in the beauty industry, she also knew that after her children were grown, she would want to explore other professional options to fill the new chapter in her life. On an introspective hike up the South Sister, she met a traveling nurse from Georgia. That day, on the side of a mountain after a surprisingly heartfelt and lengthy conversation regarding life and reinvention, Sonja knew this next chapter in her life would involve going back to college and getting a degree in Nursing.
After having spend many years in the beauty industry and subsequently receiving her degree and becoming a registered nurse, it seemed a very natural fit to enter the world of medical aesthetics.
Sonja is currently a licensed RN with advanced certification in ND yag, Vbeam. Gentlelase and IPL lasers as well as in the administration of Dermal injectables (Botox and dermal filler) for aesthetic enhancements. She is thrilled to be involved in this rapidly evolving technological field and plans this year to add to her repertoire; advanced training and certification in scierotherapy, weight loss / management, integrated and regenerative anti aging modalities.
In her spare time Sonja enjoys spending time with her 2 children and being outdoors back packing, hiking and camping and paddle boarding, most everything else Central Oregon has to offer. She is also a volunteer with the Red Cross, Donate Life NW, the PPP and community theaters.
