Toronto, ON

Sonia comes to Jack.org from the art world, having spent the last 10 years in film and visual art. She served as Executive Director of the Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival, Canada’s largest pan-Asian film festival, and most recently as Manager of Logistics at the Art Gallery of Ontario, where she had the privilege of working on the blockbuster Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors exhibition. She has always felt at home in the not-for-profit sector, working with teams who are passionate about what they do and determined to make a difference.

When she is not at work, you can find Sonia riding her bike around town with her kids, searching for the city's best fried chicken.

My mental health revolution is a world where everyone learns to practice emotional first aid just as we learn to practice physical first aid.
