Sonja was born in Forrest City, Arkansas but spent several years moving around the Southeast. She lived in Lexington and Charleston before her family finally settled in Tega Cay, South Carolina, where she graduated from Fort Mill High School in 1989. From there, she traveled to Athens, Georgia to attend the University of Georgia, where she received her undergraduate and law degrees in 1993 and 1996, respectively.

She’s also a strong advocate of alternative dispute resolution.
