Before co-founding Body Brave in 2017, she worked as Economic Analyst for the Burlington Economic Development Corporation. After recovering from a devastating eating disorder that nearly took her life, Sonia co-founded Body Brave in order to provide accessible support options for those struggling with eating disorders and their families. With her economics and business background, Sonia has a particular interest in innovative, e-health approaches that will drive systemic change in the eating disorder landscape. As a mixed person of colour, Sonia believes in the importance of exploring ways in which eating disorder treatment and support can become more accessible and equitable. She brings her passion and experiences of recovery to all of her work.
