Sonia trained as an occupational therapist and worked for 12 years in various specialities in Scotland, Switzerland, New Zealand, and the Solomon Islands.

At Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust she first worked as Head of the Occupational Therapy Department before delivering corporate projects - including leading the project management of a £85M PFI building across the Trust, Cambridge University, and the Medical Research Council. She was Deputy Director of Operations for four years delivering improved patient care pathways and processes.
