Sonia grew up in Lowell, MA and is a die-hard Boston sports fan, and football is her favorite sport. On the weekend you can find her cheering on her two favorite sports teams, the New England Patriots and Virginia Tech Hokies. An avid fan of the outdoors, Sonia and her rescue dog Hokie, can be seen running or walking around town.
