Sona came to Portland via Belarus (a small country in Eastern Europe). From an early age, Sona knew she wanted to be an engineer, so she pursued Physics and Math classes throughout her education. She enjoys the creative aspect of software development, and loves bringing fresh ideas and creating unusual solutions to problems.
Since graduating from Belarusian National Technical University with a degree in Information Systems and Technologies (in Data Processing and Presentation), Sona has been working as a Software Developer for four years in the agency space. She has appreciated the opportunity to apply her technical skills to these roles, while having space to flex her imagination and suggest creative ideas.
Outside of work, Sona enjoys a wide range of hobbies like biking, low baggage traveling, and freediving. She’s also curious to explore the great outdoors through hiking, which is one reason she picked Portland as her new home.
After a day at the office, you can find Sona crafting up something in the kitchen from a new recipe. Recently, she’s been intrigued by the art of French cuisine.
