My name is Sonia Calkins and I’m the Office Manager at Easterseals Alaska. My 20+ years of office administration experience has allowed me to contribute to the development and implementation of office protocols and procedures, as well as manage the day-to-day operations of a busy work environment.
My organizational skills have helped i
mplement a series of novel office practices improving overall efficiency and decrease in office supply costs.
I strongly believe in teamwork and strive to greet every client and staff by their name. I want all who walk through our door to feel welcomed, valued, and know they are a valued part of our team. I enjoy working for Easterseals because of our similar values, I love our mission of putting people first.
I'm a mother of two grown sons, recent empty nester, and retired military wife of 22yrs. I have lived in Alaska off and on since 1999 and we have decided to make it our permanent home. I enjoy trying and cooking new recipes and love baking. I recently mastered the art of flour tortillas and bread making. I consider my time in the kitchen as my "bake-therapy".
