Sonya brings with her 12 years of working in financial services in banking institutions—including two years of financial counseling at Operation Hope (www.operationhope.org). She is a Frostburg alumnus and received her MBA from the University of Maryland. Sonya does this work because she likes to be able to help people take control of their finances and help them fulfill personal goals like buying a home. “Banks always provide general denial reasons, but I can take it a step further. I can provide the guidance and foundation they need to get approved in the future.” When Sonya’s not at work she enjoys spending time with friends and family, taking vacations to preferred beach destinations, and reading a good novel.
