Sonia Miranda Monroy

As HR Director, Sonia Miranda Monroy is responsible for helping preserve Studio Gang’s unique culture by stewarding programs and processes that enable our designers to do what they do best. An experienced HR professional, Sonia specializes in small to mid-size organizations, focusing on process development and implementation, HR strategy, benefits management and design, compliance, employee relations, performance management, recruitment, and compensation.

Sonia began her HR career at a Chicago architecture firm where she worked for eight years, starting as an HR assistant and progressing to HR Manager. During much of her time there, Sonia supported six offices throughout the United States, China, and Brazil. Prior to her current position at Studio Gang, Sonia served as HR Business Partner for an organization that manages senior living homes. In that capacity, she led and provided support to HR Managers on employee relations and HR compliance. She also provided strategic HR services to the Chief Talent Officer and leadership team in the development of programs, policies, and procedures aimed at positioning the company as an employer of choice.

Sonia holds a bachelor of arts degree from DePaul University with a concentration in Human Resources and is an active member of the Society for Human Resource Management. During her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family, supporting the Latin dance community, and serving Rebel, her boxer/husky-mix dog who rules her household.
